David Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center

Home of the New York Philharmonic

In 1962, Philharmonic Hall, renamed Avery Fisher Hall in 1973 and later renamed David Geffen Hall in 2015, became one of the first buildings to be completed on the Lincoln Center site and became home to one of its first resident organizations, the world-renowned New York Philharmonic, the oldest symphony orchestra in the United States. Today, David Geffen Hall hosts notable performances by acclaimed orchestras and artists from around the globe, as well as galas, film premieres, graduations, and conferences.
