October marks a fresh season of performances at Carnegie Hall, bringing jazz, folk, world and popular music to NYC. Since its first performance in 1891, the Midtown venue's stunning design and unique sound have made it a timeless space for some of the world's most renowned acts. This year's highlights include special concerts in conjunction with Voices from Latin America, a citywide cultural festival that honors the region's rich heritage. Between November 8 and December 11, see Brazilian singer-songwriter Gilberto Gil, Cuban pianist and composer Chucho Valdés and Venezuelan conductor Gustavo Dudamel. On October 12, The New York Pops kicks off an exciting 2012–2013 season with Some Enchanted Evening: The Music of Rodgers and Hammerstein, a power-packed salute to the Broadway legends. For the younger set, Carnegie Hall's family concerts pair live performances with pre-concert activities to give budding music aficionados a taste of the art form.
