Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center Tickets Information
The Lincoln Center project was commissioned by John D. Rockefeller III of the "esteemed" Rockefeller Family. Though the seminal patriarch John D. Rockefeller Sr. became notorious for generating the monopoly of the Standard Oil Company, his descendents have strategically distanced themselves from the ensuing economic empire in the public's eyes and invested themselves in the patronage of arts amongst other things. The Lincoln Center and its spawn the Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center came at a "price" steeper than the $184.5 million that went into its design and construction. 7,000 ethnic families were evicted from their homes as 17 residential blocks were placed on the chopping block on the pretext of eminent domain.
Named the Philharmonic Hall following its opening in 1962, the concert hall became the new home of the New York Philharmonic and acquired its current moniker a decade later following a $10.5 million donation from its namesake member of the Philharmonic's board of directors. Originally intended to accommodate 2,400 patrons in order to incorporate the desired threshold of acoustics, Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center saw its seating bumped up to 2,738 seats, a modification that potentially compromised its acoustics. The Orchestra level holds the bulk of the seats at 1,640. The rest of the seats are distributed more or less evenly amongst the First, Second and Third Tiers . The first floor of Avery Fisher Hall houses several private areas for the New York Philharmonic as well as rest rooms, a restaurant area and the Charles Dana Lounge that can accommodate 150 diners.
Other than hosting the myriad performances of the resident New York Philharmonic, that also constitute events such as the "Mostly Mozart" festival, Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center has seen some of the biggest names on music grace its stage, such as percussionist Tito Puente, the world renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma as well as the multi-Grammy winner singer Alison Krauss. The "Great Performer" series brings international outfits such as the London Symphony Orchestra and the Singapore Symphony Orchestra to the stage of the concert hall.
