Touring the New Alice Tully Hall

Thursday, February 19, 2009

For two years and $159 million, Alice Tully Hall has undergone a complete renovation. The new Tully has towering glass walls that open onto the corner of 65th street and Broadway. The interior is simple and intimate, and includes an adjustable stage that can be extended or contracted.

The concert hall re-opens officially this Sunday, and last week, WNYC's John Schaefer walked through the new hall with architect Elizabeth Diller. Her firm, Diller Scofidio & Renfro, collaborated on the hall's design. They started in the new main lobby.

Listen to more of this conversation, and watch a video tour of the new building.

WNYC's Evening Music will broadcast Alice Tully's opening night concert this Sunday night at 8 p.m. on 93.9 FM WNYC.
