Lincoln Center and the New York Philharmonic have accelerated the long-awaited revitalization of the iconic David Geffen Hall, which will now reopen in October 2022. Three goals underlie all the planning and aspirations for the project: to create a premier home for the New York Philharmonic; to welcome and better connect with our communities; and support the comeback of New York City.


The new David Geffen Hall will reflect both the essential role that the arts play in our lives, as well as the comeback of the most dynamic city in the world.

Thus far, we have exceeded our benchmarks, with 42 percent construction participation by minority and women-owned businesses and 52 percent from underrepresented communities. Learn more »
