Carnegie Hall Opens Their 2011–2012 Season with a 120th Anniversary Year Celebration, Launching a Month-Long Focus on Tchaikovsky.
October 5, 2011
New York NY
In 1891, Carnegie Hall opened its doors with Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky on its stage. Carnegie is proud to celebrate its 120th anniversary with Yo-Yo Ma and the Mariinsky Orchestra.
Yo-Yo Ma has provided Carnegie Hall with some of its most memorable concerts ever, and an appearance by Valery Gergiev and his orchestra is always a one-of-a-kind event. Together, they perform a showstopper by the guest of honor at the very first opening night in 1891—the centerpiece of this all-Russian program.
Program to be performed without intermission.
Gala benefit TICKETS—$5000, $2500, and $1500—include premier concert seating and the post-concert dinner at The Waldorf=Astoria.
Benefit TICKETS, priced at $1000, include the concert and a pre-concert cocktail reception, which begins at 5:30 p.m. in Carnegie Hall’s Rohatyn Room.
For more than a century, New York City‘s Carnegie Hall has set the international standard for excellence in performance. Its walls have echoed with applause for the world’s outstanding classical music artists, as they have for the greatest popular musicians and many prominent dancers, authors, social crusaders and world figures who have appeared on its stages.
