Carnegie Hall information
This legendary music hall may not be the world's biggest, nor grandest, but it's definitely one of the most acoustically blessed venues around. Opera, jazz and folk greats feature in the Isaac Stern Auditorium, with edgier jazz, pop, classical and world music in the hugely popular Zankel Hall. The intimate Weill Recital Hall hosts chamber-music concerts, debut performances and panel discussions.
From October to June, Carnegie Hall runs one-hour guided tours of the building, shedding light on the venue's storied history. Guided tours (adult/child $17/12) are subject to performance and rehearsal schedules, so check the website before heading in.
