Spring for Music is a festival of six concerts by North American symphony and chamber orchestras that is presented annually at Carnegie Hall. Vitally driven by innovative and avant-garde works, the festival seeks to lead the musical zeitgeist
by encouraging participating orchestras to cultivate provocative and
exploratory programs.

The festival is a musical laboratory that reflects each orchestra’s individual characteristics of sound, style, and ensemble, as informed by its culture, company, and tradition while simultaneously challenging the musicians to present imaginative and experimental work.

Fittingly, each orchestra also has the opportunity to describe how their program relates to and reflects its fundamental values, beliefs, and vision before each concert.

The imaginative and experimental programs invite broad audiences to a journey of intellect and sensation—an engaging adventure in which the program in entirety becomes a piecemeal masterpiece.

All events in the Spring for Music festival will take place at Carnegie Hall in the Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage, located at 881 Seventh Avenue at West 57th Street. Tickets to each concert are available for $25. Tickets to the series of all six concerts are available for $100.
Classical 105.9 FM WQXR will broadcast all six Spring For Music concerts live from Carnegie Hall.

How do you get to Carnegie Hall?

From the Quin, stroll briefly toward Seventh Avenue.

The flawless façade of brick exudes the restrained impeccability of Manhattan masonry at the turn of the last century.  Named for famed businessman, philanthropist, and financial backer, Andrew Carnegie, this New York landmark venue was initially forged as the home of the Oratorio Society of New York and the New York Symphony Society. 

The music hall’s first concert took place in May of 1891 and featured a performance by the great P. I. Tchaikovsky.

Carnegie Hall has long lived up to its auspicious beginnings, garnering prestige on the world’s stage as a premiere venue for both classical and popular music.
