Carnegie Hall has been closed since March 13 in line with executive orders by New York City and New York State government officials.
“It is heartbreaking to all of us to have to extend the closure of the Hall due to the COVID crisis, however we do so with the health of our public, artists, and staff front of mind,” said Clive Gillinson, Executive and Artistic Director of Carnegie Hall.
“We will continue our close consultation with medical and health professionals as well as government officials to determine whether there is any possibility for live music to return in some capacity next spring. We know that everyone is eager for the performing arts to return to New York City and we are committed to exploring all avenues to bringing music back as soon as it is safe to do so."
"In the meanwhile, I remain deeply grateful to our entire Carnegie Hall team for their work enabling us to engage digitally with music lovers around the world, serving the mission of the Hall in exciting new ways.”
