Carnegie Hall continues its new online series—Live with Carnegie Hall—throughout July.

Learn with Carnegie Hall continues on Wednesday, July 15 at 2 p.m. EDT featuring All Together: A Global Ode to Joy, a yearlong project led by conductor Marin Alsop commemorating the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth. The episode will feature excerpts from the first All Together performance by the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra in Brazil in December 2019, a conversation with former US poet laureate Tracy K. Smith about the adaptation of Schiller’s “Ode to Joy” poem that she created for the project, and performances of original songs inspired by the All Together project, written by songwriters from across New York City.

On Tuesday, July 21 at 2 p.m. EDT, Carnegie Hall celebrates the life of violinist Isaac Stern on the occasion of his 100th birthday with a special edition of Live with Carnegie Hall. A world-acclaimed violinist, educator, and activist, Stern was an American icon. Carnegie Hall dedicated its 2019–2020 season in his honor, grateful for his tireless work in saving the building from demolition in 1960 and for his aspirations of what the concert hall would mean to future generations. This episode will feature conversation and music by Stern’s longtime friends and collaborators.

Acclaimed singer and actress Audra McDonald curates a Live with Carnegie Hall program on Thursday, July 23 at 2 p.m. EDT joined by musical director Andy Einhorn, including selections that are new to her songbook.

Both Live with Carnegie Hall and Learn with Carnegie Hall stream on Carnegie Hall’s webpage, as well as the Hall’s Facebook and YouTube pages. A schedule of upcoming episodes and archived programs available for on-demand viewing can be found on carnegiehall.org/live and carnegiehall.org/learn.
