The Concert Experience

What do I wear? When do I clap? Find answers to some of our most frequently asked questions, and discover how to make the most of your concert experience.

Plan Your Visit

Take a Look in Your Closet

Carnegie Hall has no specific dress code, so you might see a variety of attire: tuxedos and long dresses at gala concerts, business attire on weeknights, or other more casual outfits. Use your judgment based on the type of artist or performance you are attending. We also offer a coat check with a $2.50 per item charge.

To Clap or Not to Clap ...

That is the question. Participating in a rousing ovation at concert’s end is thrilling, but sharing your excitement between movements of a classical music work might distract the artists. If you are unsure about when to applaud, a good rule of thumb is follow the lead of other audience members.

Audience Participation

Humming, singing along, and even dancing make world, pop, and jazz concerts lively. But doing this at a piano recital or during a soft orchestral passage may not necessarily be appreciated by your neighbors or the musicians on stage.

Before You Snap a Photo

Who wouldn’t want to keep a visual memory of a Carnegie Hall visit? However, please remember photos can only be taken with handheld devices when the performance isn’t in progress. Sound or video recording of any performance without written permission of management is strictly prohibited. Unauthorized photographs, videos or other recordings may be deleted at management’s discretion.

What Am I Hearing Tonight?

A great way to learn about the music you are going to hear begins with a visit to the event page. You’ll find a list of the works being performed, blurbs and program notes about the music, artist biographies, and even listening samples. It’s the best way to get a head start on your Carnegie Hall visit.

At the Hall

Enjoy a Snack

Have a pre-concert sip and a snack with delectable nibbles and drinks from STARR Events at the Café. The Café is easily accessible from the Parquet level of Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage. Please remember, food and drinks are not permitted in any of the Carnegie Hall auditoriums.

Get Inside the Music: Free Pre-Concert Talks

Selected Carnegie Hall presentations begin with pre-concert talks to guide you through the music you are about to hear, providing an entertaining and enlightening look at the repertoire and composers before the performances even begin. Arrive one hour before the concert time for these talks—free for all ticket holders—and visit our website for speaker updates and additions to the season’s offerings.

Our Best Kept Secret: Rose Museum

From Ella Fitzgerald’s eyeglasses to Benny Goodman’s clarinet, more than 400 items are on display in the Rose Museum as part of The History of Carnegie Hall, a comprehensive exhibit that looks back on the outstanding music and events since the Hall’s opening in 1891. Located on the second floor of Carnegie Hall, the Rose Museum is free to the public and open daily, 11 AM–4:30 PM. It is also accessible before concerts and during intermissions of events in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage.

After the Concert

Salon Encores

Join us after your Weill Recital Hall concert in the Jacobs Room, and enjoy a free drink with people who love music—and love to discuss it—as much as you do. You never know who you might run into: The evening’s musicians also drop by from time to time.

Mix and Mingle

The concert is over, the applause is finished, and you want to talk about it with others. Join us immediately after concerts in this series for a 45-minute mix and mingle at Zankel Hall’s Parterre Bar. Enjoy a free drink and other refreshments, conversation, and perhaps a visit from the performers.

If you are wondering what encores were performed at the conclusion of your Carnegie Hall Presents concert, be sure to visit the event page the next day to see if your guess was correct. It will satisfy your curiosity and is a fun way to show your friends how much you know about music!

Come Back for a Tour

Get behind the scenes and walk through the hallowed halls with one of our friendly and knowledgeable tour guides. During the 60–75 minute tour, visitors will see the famous Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage from various points of view, walk through Composers Alley, hear the stories behind many of the famous signed photographs of performers hanging on the walls, and much more.
