Carnegie Hall Celebrates History of Immigrants in America Throughout NYC


Migrations: The Making of America is Carnegie Hall’s citywide festival that links the history of America to the large-scale movements of people who helped build this country. With events starting in New York on February 28, and events at Carnegie Hall starting March 9, Migrations encompases dance, music, storytelling, exhibitions, and events at more than 75 cultural and academic institutions across New York City and beyond through May 2019.

At Carnegie Hall, festival concerts will examine the musical legacies of three migrations: the crossings from Scotland and Ireland during the 18th and 19th centuries; the immigration of Jews from Russia and Eastern Europe between 1881 and the National Origins Act of 1924; and the Great Migration—the exodus of African Americans from the South to the industrialized cities of the Northeast, Midwest, and West from 1917 into the 1970s. Migrations concerts by leading artists at Carnegie Hall include performances of bluegrass, old-time, klezmer, Yiddish musical theater, the Great American Songbook, blues, jazz, and more.
