How do you get to Carnegie Hall? ''Practice, practice, practice,'' according to the old joke. Actually Carnegie Hall is smack in the center of midtown New York, just a short walk from Central Park – and easily reached by bus and subway from every corner of the city. Regarded as acoustically perfect, Carnegie Hall has been the scene of thousands of performances over the years, and continues to be one of New York’s central entertainment venues. Shows range from small acoustic performances to family concerts and big-time musicals. There’s a weekend concert series designed for children and families, which is an interactive and educational way for families to enjoy live performances at the hall. For those who can’t schedule time to see an actual performance, weekday tours are given of the backstage area, dressing rooms and rehearsal halls. There’s even an excellent museum on the second floor, along with a fascinating archive (both free of charge). With so many ways to view the world of the performer, Carnegie Hall can inspire young children to become the musical artists of the future.
