Carnegie Hall receives lighting grant



Things are a bit brighter at Carnegie Hall these days, as critical repairs to the stage lighting system have been completed.

About half of Carnegie Hall’s 20-plus-year-old lights failed in the fall, forcing the Carnegie Hall and performers to make do with inadequate stage lights. Thanks to financial assistance from the West Virginia Division of Culture and History with approval from the West Virginia Commission on the Arts and a matching grant from the Hamilton Family Foundation, Carnegie Hall staff members were able to work with local vendors to purchase and install the new lights.

The new LED lights are significantly more energy efficient than the old ones and restore Carnegie Hall’s ability to provide a high-quality performance venue for the world-class artists who perform on our historic stage.
