A grand pillar of the New York music scene, Carnegie Hall is the place artists go to, to make their name in the business. Since its opening in 1891, an array of superstars of the classical, pop, modern and jazz worlds have graced the boards of this legendary music hall. From Tchaikovsky and Leopold Stokowski to Vladimir Horowitz, Liza Minnelli, Paul Robeson and Bob Dylan, the world's finest and most talented performers have taken to the stage and earned their stripes of this Manhattan musical institution. Although the Hall reigns supreme over 120 years after its grand launch, there have been many twists and turns in its story including change of owners, imminent demolition and rescue by the city of New York. To celebrate its long and colorful history, the Susan and Elihu Rose Foundation's Rose Museum recounts every step through an ongoing display of a collection of artifacts including concert programs, videos, photographs, autographed posters and musical manuscripts. Open daily with free admission, this is one exhibition not be missed whether a fan of NYC, music or history alike.
