Abstract:

Tribute to Carnegie Hall, New York, in the form of a series of brief interviews with performers who have appeared on its stage. They share reminiscences of their own and others' performances, relay historical information, and discuss the variety of Carnegie Hall's presentations, which have included classical music, jazz, pop, comedy, drama, dance, children's concerts, and folk music. Archival footage of illustrious performers of the past and excerpts from more recent performances provide a sampling of the hall's offerings. A montage of the activities of past and present tenants of the building's many studios illustrates its importance to the arts. Tenants and supporters are seen protesting a proposed demolition in 1960, which would have had disastrous and wide-ranging effects. Interspersed through the program are excerpts from Mussorgsky's Pictures at an exhibition, played by the New York Youth Symphony conducted by Samuel Wong.
