Carnegie Hall definition


A concert hall, world-famous for its acoustics, in New York City.

Note: Carnegie Hall was the home of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra for many years. When the orchestra announced in 1959 that it was moving to a new building, plans were made to tear Carnegie Hall down. Because of the efforts of the violinist Isaac Stern and other artists, however, it has been preserved as a concert hall.
