  • The History and Treasures of Carnegie Hall

    August 19, 2016

    Friday, August 19, 5:30 p.m. 
    The Cloister Clubroom

    Carnegie Hall is one of the most famous theaters in the world. The joke, "How do you get to Carnegie Hall?" has entered American lore and the answer "practice" has surpassed music and now signifies attaining any goal. How did this theater become one of the most famous in the world? And what treasures exist in its archives? Director of the Archives and Rose Museum Gino Francesconi will talk about the history of Carnegie Hall, some of the famous people he worked with as the backstage artist attendant in an earlier career, and the adventure of starting the archives from scratch, in 1986, just four years before the Hall’s 100th anniversary. Since no archives existed most of Carnegie Hall’s history had disappeared. Through detective work and appeals to the public, the archives has now catalogued more than 50,000 events, more than any other theater in the world, and priceless artifacts donated by people from all over the world. Gino interweaves the history of the Hall with the search for its treasures in a fascinating journey. Event is complimentary for resort guests and Club members. Reservations required, 912-638-5111.
