Carnegie Hall: Performance Search

At 126 years of age, the reputation of the concert hall built by industrialist Andrew Carnegie and conductor and composer Walter Damrosch as one of the premiere stages in the United States is firmly established. This website from the Carnegie Hall Archives allows users to search and browse through past performances from 1891 though 2017 by keyword, composer, work, performer, date, or date range. Although Carnegie Hall is known for classical performances, a few test searches on Pete Seeger and David Bowie produced interesting results. Pete Seeger as a keyword retrieved 80 performances starting with the American Folk Music Concert Saturday, April 20, 1946 to Arlo Guthrie and Pete Seeger with The Guthrie Family in 2013. David Bowie performed at Carnegie Hall in 1972 with the Spiders From Mars and several times in the early 2000s at benefit concerts for Tibet, but to see the all-star listing from the Bowie Tribute concert in March of 2016, you must search by keyword or composer. For those less familiar with performers and composers, a nice search feature allows typing in the first few letters of a name and seeing the choices filled in automatically. A short history of Carnegie Hall is provided as a 12-page .pdf, and there's also an illustrated timeline.
