Carnival of the Animals

Art over the centuries has explored the closeness of humankind to the natural world. During the 17th and 18th centuries, composers gleefully replicated the actual sounds made by animals. In the Romantic and modern eras, the personalities of wild creatures were portrayed just as skillfully. With good cheer, Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Centers invites listeners to Alice Tully Hall to welcome the summer with the marvelous noises of nature.

  • Since it opened in 1969, Alice Tully Hall has been home to the New York Film Festival and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. Performances take place on the Adrienne Arsht Stage, within the warm wood veneers of the Starr Theater. In addition to world-class chamber music, Alice Tully Hall hosts numerous virtuoso concerts on its cathedral-sized, Swiss-made pipe organ.

    Following a highly anticipated renovation and expansion in 2009, the hall now has a three-story glass lobby which features a café and bar, and a cantilevered extension juts out over a sunken plaza at the corner of Broadway and 65th Street, now a meeting place for Lincoln Center visitors and the general public.
