120 years of music

Wednesday, April 13, 2011


Last night, Carnegie Hall threw a gala concert to mark its 120th anniversary.


Both music legends such as Bette Midler and stars of today like Regina Spektor gathered to celebrate the hall’s anniversary with James Taylor.


It was an eventful night, to say the least, with a performance by Sting, and Taylor (who first hit the hall’s stage in 1970) sang his hit songs and did a duet with Broadway star Barbara Cook. Even Bill Clinton took to the stage at the end of the concert to express his gratitude for the hall (no singing by former Mr. President).


Other notable guests such as Michael Douglas, Trudie Styler, Tory Burch, Erin Featherston, Clarissa and Edgar Bronfman, Harry and Pamela Belafonte, Tom and Meredith Brokaw and Steve Martin paid tribute to the hall’s history and all of the musical and cultural events that have taken place on stage. The after party was held a t another New York institution, MoMA.
