NEW YORK (AP) - Carnegie Hall will miss an entire season for the first time for the first time in its 130-year history.
Carnegie canceled performances from April 6 through July at its three venues, extending a closure that started last March 13 due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Carnegie hopes to reopen in October for its 2021-22 season.
The pandemic also caused the Metropolitan Opera to miss a season for the first time.
Broadway theaters have been closed since March, and the arts shutdowns have contributed to major contraction to New York City’s economy.
