The New Carnegie – Expanding Musical Tastes

Carnegie Hall’s new hall allows it to expand its musical tastes. “The first thing is that when we present a series curated by musicians like Caetano Veloso or Emmylou Harris, you are not seeing those artists replacing the traditional recital or orchestral series that we do. We’re not sacrificing one for the other, we’re adding something new. But also, as audiences develop and change, I think you find people who love Emmylou Harris and also go to hear the Berlin Philharmonic.”
