Built by and named for philanthropist Andrew Carnegie in 1891, this impressive building is the tallest example of masonry unsupported by steel frame in the New York area. It comprises three large, separate performance spaces for both classical and popular music, despite the New York Philharmonic flying the nest in 1962 to The Lincoln Center. It is also the focus of a well-known joke about how to get there ("Practice").

Can you believe it? 2016 sees the 125th anniversary of the opening of Carnegie Hall, one of the world's most famous concert venues. To celebrate this momentous occasion, the trustees are inviting some of music's most eminent artists to perform in a one-off gala on the very date that the Hall opened! Confirmed guests for the gala include regulars Yo-Yo Ma, Renee Fleming and Lang Lang, as well as Martina Arroyo, Emanuel Ax, Jessye Norman and James Taylor.

Recognised for her eye-catching outfits and glamorous stage persona as well as her virtuoso pianist skills, Wang is a rising star in international classical music, hailing from Beijing and from a musical family to boot. At the tender age of 11, Wang was accepted to the Morningside Music Bridge International Music Festival in Calgary, making her the youngest ever student. Wang is touring the US to give you a taste of why she is being hailed as one of the most promising young classical artists to come out of China, following in the footsteps of peers such as Lang Lang.

The world renowned Met Orchestra is back! Under the guidance of Music Director James Levine, they'll be showcasing an incredibly diverse repertoire featuring Evgeny Kissin tickling the ivories (rather powerfully) in Rachmaninoff's thrilling Piano Concerto No.2, enchanting soprano Renee Fleming performing a programme of Strauss' works and soprano Christine Goerke and tenor Johan Botha in excerpts from Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen.
