Carnegie Hall has announced the cancellation of the rest of its 2019-2020 season - due to the ongoing threat of the COVID-19 pandemic

Carnegie Hall, in New York City has this week announced the cancellation of the rest of its 2019-2020 season - due to the ongoing threat of the COVID-19 pandemic.

All Carnegie Hall performances through to the 25th of July, 2020 have been officially cancelled — including all free Carnegie Hall Citywide performances in venues throughout New York City.

“Given Carnegie Hall’s primary commitment to the health and safety of the public, its artists, and staff, we had no choice other than to close the Hall through the end of the season in light of this ongoing crisis ... " Carnegie Hall Executive and Artistic Director Clive Gillinson has this week said.

“While it is deeply disappointing not to be able to welcome our artists and concertgoers back this season, our team continues to work tirelessly to develop meaningful new ways to continue to connect with audiences, bringing the power and inspiration of music to people everywhere at a time when we all need it more than ever,” he has said.

Carnegie Hall's National Youth Orchestra of the USA, NYO2 and NYO Jazz summer seasons have not been cancelled at this stage, however the venue will monitor all public health conditions and adjust accordingly.

The 2020-2021 season is scheduled to commence on the 7th of October, 2020.
