Carnegie Hall Announces 41 Season Schedule and Ticketing Dates

Carnegie Hall is excited to announce its 2024-2025 Performance Series schedule as it prepares to celebrate its 41st season of “Bringing the Arts to Life.” This season has something for everyone, with a lineup that includes all genres of music.

New Season Subscriptions are on sale now. Individual tickets go on sale to Carnegie Hall Members on Saturday, July 8, and to the public on Monday, July 17. The free Club Carnegie Preshow Reception in the Board Room will open one hour prior to each show and during intermission.  

The Mainstage Performance Series kicks off on Sunday, October 6, 2024, at 7 p.m., with Mountain Stage with host Kathy Mattea.  Be a part of Mountain Stage’s live radio audience at Carnegie Hall, as they record a new episode for NPR Music. Host Kathy Mattea will welcome guest artists American Patchwork Quartet, Kyshona, The Brother Brothers, Stephanie Lambring, and more.

Produced by West Virginia Public Broadcasting and distributed by NPR Music, each two-hour episode is recorded in front of a live audience and can be heard every week on nearly 300 stations across America, and around the world via NPR Music and

America’s premier large brass ensemble, The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass (RMPBB) will grace the Hamilton Auditorium stage on Friday, November 1, 2024, at 7 p.m. RMPBB is a family owned and operated business that had its beginnings on the streets of New Orleans. On the advice of family patriarch Ellis Marsalis, the group created a concert format that breaks the usual barriers between genres and strives to create a connection between the audience and performers.

Back by popular demand, and what has now become a holiday tradition, the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra (WVSO) conducted by Music Director Maurice Cohn will perform on Friday, December 6, 2024, at 7 p.m. WVSO is West Virginia’s premier performing arts organization, presenting classical, pop, and chamber-music concerts annually throughout the Mountain State. WVSO performs primarily at the Clay Center in Charleston, West Virginia, performs over 50 concerts annually around the state, and has a nationally award-winning education program.

On Friday, February 7, 2025, at 7 p.m., Naturally Seven returns to Carnegie Hall for the first time after back-to-back performances in 2004 and 2005.  Originally classified as an “A Capella group”, it so vastly underplayed what they created onstage that they had to coin a phrase – “Vocal Play” – to more accurately depict what they do. Naturally Seven is more than a tightly orchestrated collection of great singers. They transform their voices into actual human instruments, effortlessly producing music of any genre. For the Carnegie Hall show, Naturally Seven has taken some of the greatest songs associated with film over the last 75 years and are telling the story of film and cultural history through the music that defines it.

Changing pace, the Tartan Terrors bring their Celtic Invasion to Carnegie Hall, blending the energy of a rock show with humor and stepdance Friday, March 7, 2025, at 7 p.m.  With a distinctive sound and a proud tradition of making Celtic music fun and accessible to any audience, the Terrors have played big stages across North America, including The Iridium, Times Square, NYC, Daryl’s House Club, Pawling, NY, Freeman Arts Pavilion, Selbyville, DE, Glasgow Lands Scottish Festival, Florence, MA, and The Celtic Music & Craft Beer Festival in Dunedin, FL.

On Saturday, April 5, 2025, at 7 p.m., Lights Out presents A Tribute to Frankie Valli and More. Being hailed as “The Nation’s #1 Tribute to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, “Lights Out” brings a high energy show, tight harmonies, comedy, audience participation, engaging personality, and a fully choreographed show that keeps audiences captivated from beginning to end.

The final Main Stage Performance brings it all back home with gospel group The McCrary Sisters on Saturday, May 3. The McCrary Sisters sing gospel that melds traditional with contemporary and incorporates their influences of classic soul, Americana, blues, rock, and R&B music. Central to their work and any show is their boundless joy in singing, and a desire to spread hope, love, healing (and dancing). The McCrary Sisters have recorded or performed with notable artists Martina McBride, Eric Church, Patty Griffin, Rosanne Cash, Carrie Underwood, Hank Williams Jr., Dr. John, Sheryl Crow, and many more.

Carnegie Hall’s Classics Series and Second Stage Series will also return for the 2024-2025 season.
