Carnegie Hall Slashes Schedule And Budget
Posted: January 21, 2009
NEW YORK (AP) -- Carnegie Hall is cutting its 2009-10 schedule by 10 percent because of the recession, instituting a hiring freeze and slashing $4 million from the budget for its current season to keep it balanced.

Carnegie executive and artistic director Clive Gillinson says next season's budget would be even lower than the revised $76 million for this season. Carnegie announced a schedule of 180 concerts, down from about 200 in recent seasons.

Susan Brady, the hall's director of development, says individual giving for this season was down 17 to 18 percent to $11 million. She says corporate donations had remained steady and that overall giving was about $30 million.
