One of my greatest musical moments was listening to the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra perform at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam last year. (Pictured below.) This Thursday, February 14th, I will again be listening to them, but this time in Carnegie Hall. The program will include two of my favorite works, Mozart’s 40th Symphony and Brahms 4th Symphony.
What have been the greatest performances in Carnegie Hall’s storied history? Which famous musicians and singers have performed there? What great works have been debuted in one of the most revered music halls in the world?
This is the kind of project I love: Mucking around Carnegie Hall, researching its history and its music.
I’m really looking forward to presenting this show at “the cell,” which is called “From Carnegie to The Cell,” and is the last show in the Charles R. Hale Productions/Musica Solis Series, “Classically Exposed: From Carnegie Hall to the Cell.”
I’ll be narrating Carnegie’s history, joined by a great group of musicians who will be performing some of music’s most revered works. Mark your calendar…December 6, 7:30pm. Hope to see you there.

I’m looking forward to presenting “We Are As One, at “Straight Outta Ireland,” which is part of Carnegie Hall’s “Migrations: The Making of America.” March 10th, 2pm to 4pm, The Loft at City Winery, 155 Varick Street, NYC. “Straight Outta Ireland” is an Ed McCann/650 creation.
