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—Music for Everyone.
Ensemble ACJW: The Academy—a program of Carnegie Hall, The Juilliard School, and the Weill Music Institute in partnership with the New York City Department of Education—is a two-year fellowship program for the finest young professional musicians designed to develop the artistic values and skills necessary for careers that combine musical excellence with education, community engagement, advocacy, and leadership.
Carnegie Hall's 2014--2015 season is made up of over 170 concerts featuring a remarkable range of performances by many of the world's greatest artists and ensembles from the worlds of classical, pop, jazz, and world music.
Among the 2014--2015 major season programming highlights is UBUNTU: Music and Arts of South Africa, a three-week citywide festival from October 10 to November 5, 2014 and two Perspectives series of artist-curated programs by renowned mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato and acclaimed violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter. Composer Meredith Monk has been appointed to Carnegie Hall's Richard and Barbara Debs Composer's Chair for the 2014--2015 season; Ms. Monk's season-long residency will include two concerts presented in spring 2015 in celebration of the 50th anniversary of her performing life in New York City. Also, in spring 2015, Carnegie Hall presents Before Bach, a month-long series of 13 performances showcasing many of the world's most exciting early-music performers, focusing on music written before 1685—the birth year of both Bach and Handel.
We hope you'll join us at Carnegie Hall and throughout New York City to experience this incredible music!
