Welcome to your new David Geffen Hall, the home of the New York Philharmonic and the new cultural home for New York. The reimagining of the Hall is centered around a deep focus on welcoming visitors and audiences to Lincoln Center and expanding the possibilities of a concert hall. Thousands of square feet of public space are open daily to the public; improved accessibility features are offered throughout; concerts and community events are open to passersby from 65th Street and Columbus Avenue; and select performances from inside the concert hall are streamed live, free of charge. Be one of the first to experience David Geffen Hall this season. Whether you're returning to the Hall or visiting for the first time, we look forward to welcoming you!
