Just a small town girl, living in a lonely world. I'll take public transport and go anywhere.

Music and plenty of leg room
Carnegie Hall is a world famous concert venue for classical and other popular music. It has boasted the likes of Tchaikovsky, Benny Goodman, Billie Holiday, Judy Garland, Ike & Tina Turner, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Beach Boys.
Named after Andrew Carnegie, a wealthy steel manufacturer who funded its construction, there are three venues within the hall to see performances. The smallest is Weille Recital Hall, then the newer mid-size Zankel Hall and then finally the Main Hall (Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage) built in 1891. Each has different coloured plush seats to match the drapery and each has excellent acoustics.
Walk into the box office the day before a concert to take advantage of any last minute tickets. Student and group discounts are also available.
The Box office is open Monday to Saturday, 11 AM–6 PM and Sunday, 12 PM–6 PM
