Carnegie Hall's Historic Shutdown



Carnegie Hall has made an announcement that for the first time in it's 130 year history it will miss an entire season. In continuation, the shutdown remains in effect through July, 2021. The legendary concert hall plans to reopen in October for its 2021-22 season, assuming conditions in New York City with the coronavirus and the city's mandates allow for live performances of that nature.


In a press release, Carnegie Hall made this announcement,

"We are deeply grateful for the loyalty, support, and commitment you have shown Carnegie Hall. Given current social-distancing protocols related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all in-person events through the 2020–2021 season... We look forward to sharing live music with you again as soon as we are able to reconnect in person."

Carnegie Hall's 'Voices of Hope' will continue as planned, however, now it will only be available through online video streaming from April 16 through April 30. Official announcements will occur in March. Carnegie also plans to continue its summer youth residences at SUNY Purchase which occur during the summer months.
