Introduction

A Gala Celebrating 120 Years of Carnegie Hall

On April 12, 2011 James Taylor and a spectacular lineup of special guests including Barbara Cook, Bette Midler, Steve Martin, Sting, Vince Bruce, Dianne Reeves, Kevin Pollak, the Tanglewood Festival Chorus and the Young People’s Chorus of New York took to the stage at legendary Carnegie Hall to help James celebrate its 120th birthday. Ten years later, James in collaboration with Carnegie Hall is delighted to share this concert film with you. It all starts at 7:30 ET on July 1 — mark your calendars and we’ll you see here.

James has appeared on the stage at Carnegie Hall over 40 times since 1970. This online special special broadcast honors James’s 50 year anniversary of his first concert there on June 12, 1970.

In this section you’ll find a reproduction of the concert program from April 12, 2011 plus song lyrics and photos.
