Lincoln Center Philharmonic Hall will open in early October

Lincoln Center announced Wednesday that the new $550 million concert hall for the New York Philharmonic will open in October, two years ahead of schedule.

Governor Kathy Hochul and Mayor Eric Adams attended a ceremony to preview the reinterpretation David Geffen Hallwhich Lincoln Center and the Philharmonic said will enhance the concert experience and come with better acoustics.

The main lobby will double in size and contain a media streaming wall showing live concerts and events for free, as well as other digital information.

The overhaul also includes a new Welcome Center on Broadway and a redesigned Grand Promenade that will seat 1,000 people.

“This new David Geffen Hall, the genius behind it, breaking down barriers, bringing people closer to artists. I think the only key takeaway from this pandemic is that people are missing that very human connection,” Hochul said.

“This isolation, this feeling of being alone, it’s been crippling for so many people, and this venue is going to be so open and welcoming, bringing people close together in countless ways… What you’re seeing right out of this window is the future of New.” York.”

Adams said the new and improved Lincoln Center is another sign that the city will “come back bigger and better” from the coronavirus pandemic.

The converted concert hall replaces the old Avery Fisher Hall, first built in 1962.
