By David Salazar

Carnegie Hall has announced a partnership with Northwell Health.

This is the first time that the famed musical organization teams up with a healthcare provider.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Northwell Health as our first-ever Official Healthcare Partner,” said Clive Gillinson, Executive and Artistic Director of Carnegie Hall, in an official press statement. “Over the years, through the Hall’s wide range of education and social impact initiatives, we have seen firsthand the many ways that music can play a role in supporting health and well-being. We are grateful for a partner who shares our belief in the healing power of music and the positive impact it can have on people’s lives.”

The three-year partnership aims to increase New Yorkers’ access to the performing arts while also promoting positive wellness benefits of music. It will support Carnegie Hall Citywide, a concert series that brings music to people around the five boroughs.

Also included in the partnership is the sponsorship of a February concert at Zankel Hall as part of the Well-Being Concerts. Open to the public, this series will explore the impact of live music on well-being. It is set for Feb. 4, 2024.

“We are proud to be the Official Healthcare Partner with this storied New York institution that has set the international standard for musical excellence as the aspirational destination for the world’s finest artists,” added Michael Dowling, President and CEO of Northwell Health. He is also a recently elected member of Carnegie Hall’s Board of Directors. “At Northwell, we strongly believe in the healing power of music and know the positive impact music has had on both our patients and staff. As New York’s largest healthcare provider, caring for over two million people annually in the New York metro area and beyond, we hope Carnegie Hall’s Citywide and Well-Being Concert series reinforce our connection to each other, our families and our communities.”
