Carnegie hall produced events: of the approximately 650 events that take place at carnegie hall each season, carnegie hall presents or produces approximately 32% of the concerts held in stern auditorium/perelman stage, less than 8% of the events in weill recital hall, and approximately 41% of the events in zankel hall. These presentations-ranging from orchestral concerts, chamber music, solo recitals, and choral performances to jazz, world, and popular music are marketed both as subscription series (organized into approximately 50 concert series each year) and as single events.

hall rental operations: in addition to carnegie hall's own presentations, the corporation leases and manages carnegie hall as an auditorium for concerts and other performances to diversify the exposure of music related arts to the community. Such events presented by outside promoters represent a source of rental income and bring a greater variety to the stages, augmenting the artistic profile of carnegie hall and underscoring a long tradition of embracing diversity.

the weill music institute at carnegie hall creates broad-reaching music education programs, playing a central role in carnegie hall's commitment to making great music accessible to as many people as possible through creative musical interaction and inspiring lifelong learning.

Several years ago, I attempted to give money to Carnegie Hall. I consulted Charity Navigator. At that time, the website gave the names and salaries of the 3 highest-paid employees. They were 3 stagehands. They each earned over $300,000 per year. The senior stage hand earned over $400,000. No scenery to move at Carnegie Hall. Some risers, occasionally a piano. These guys have ripped off Carnegie Hall for years, and management is powerless to stop the excesses. A simple picket line, honored by other unions, could shut the hall down. The NY Times has written about this, but no one seems to care. A large percentage of your gift will go to the stagehands. Keep that in mind when you consider a donation.
