As part of the La Serenissima festival, cultural institutions from New York City held 29 events related to the Venetian Republic’s arts and culture. They included everything from roundtable discussions, art exhibitions, lectures, theater performances, and concerts, and included partnerships with 15 organizations and five digital partners.
- I've noticed that video performances are being posted. I sang in a c...hoir back in February of 2004. We performed Mozart's Requiem. I was wondering if it is possible to get it posted. I would love to see and listen to it
- How does 'Idomeneo' get to Carnegie Hall? (Other than practice, practice, practice.)
Plus it has four not only one wall ;-)
I leave it there......
The way it's build creates nearly perfect audio quality. Charming to the eye the interieur is dipped in cream white, red and gold. The look from top is as steep as breathtaki
I also would like to mention the one Carnegie Hall ritual I never neglect, i.e. taking a nice pocketful of Ricola from the foyer dispensers
I had the chance to perform on the Carnegie Hall stage once and it's an experience

"The music created the illusion of human voices, the purest representation of breath, and time seemed to expand and contract with the spectrum of sounds." —The Boston Globe on the world premiere of Sofia Gubaidulina’s Triple Concerto for Violin, Cello, and Bayan, co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall. You can hear the work, alongside Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 7, “Leningrad,” this Tuesday, February 28 at Carnegie Hall. http://bit.ly/2mm2hpB
La Serenissima, the three week citywide celebration of music and arts from the Venetian Republic, has come to a close. Read what The New York Times had to say.
The Future Music Project Ensemble, a youth-led, youth-run, and youth-produced musical collective comprised of teens from across New York City, performed a mid-year concert in the Resnick Education Wing.
In the Future Music Project, young musicians create, perform, and produce their own original music in workshops, classes, and performances four days a week at Carnegie Hall. Applications are now open for the 2017–2018 Future Music Project Ensemble at carnegiehall.org/FutureMusicProject.

Monteverdi’s opera “L’incoronazione di Poppea” tells a tale of ancient Roman political machinations, adultery, and murder, in which there is no true protagonist. It was performed in concert by Concerto Italiano with an all-star cast, conducted by Rinaldo Alessandrini. The title role was sung by soprano Miah Persson, who returns to Carnegie Hall with baritone Florian Boesch and pianist Malcolm Martineau on March 22 for an all-Schumann recital in Zankel Hall.

Have you heard of the “Vienna sound?” The distinct sound of the Vienna Philharmonic / Wiener Philharmoniker sets it apart from many other orchestras of today. Hear this distinct sound on Friday, February 24 when Franz Welser-Möst leads the Vienna Philharmonic in Schubert’s Overture to “Die Zauberharfe,” Strauss’s “Ein Heldenleben,” and the US premiere of René Staar’s “Time Recycling.” http://bit.ly/2lJtViW
As part of his exploration of the “late style,” pianist Jonathan Biss led workshops for young artists on the late solo works of Beethoven, Brahms, and Schubert in the Resnick Education Wing.
