THIRTEEN’s NYC-ARTS to Feature a Conversation with Carnegie Hall Executive and Artistic Director Clive Gillinson
On March 7, NYC-ARTS will feature the program’s co-host and New York Emmy winner Paula Zahn in conversation with Clive Gillinson, Executive and Artistic Director of Carnegie Hall.
A former professional cellist and Managing Director of the London Symphony Orchestra, Gillinson has been at Carnegie Hall since July 2005.
Here he has developed and overseen the artistic programming for the Hall, working on 170 performances each season, ranging from classical music to multi-cultural and popular music of today. Gillinson also oversees the operations of Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute, utilizing the resources of Carnegie Hall to bring music education and community programs to roughly 600,000 people in the New York City metropolitan area, across the United States, and around the world each season.
The interview coincides with Carnegie Hall’s citywide festival “Migrations: The Making of America,” beginning March 9 through April 15. “Migrations” will trace the journeys of people of different origins and backgrounds who have helped shape and influence American arts and culture, and will feature more than 100 events celebrating the cultural, social, economic and political contributions of the people who helped shape the country.
