Carnegie Hall receives $10 million gift for renovation work
February 05, 2013
Carnegie Hall has even more support for its Studio Towers Renovation Project, a transformational renovation project that was designed to increase accessibility to music, thanks to a $10 million gift from Judith and Burton Resnick.
"We strongly believe in the importance of music education, and we are very proud to be associated with both the Hall's new education center and the innovative programs of Carnegie Hall's Weill Music Institute that will find a home there," said Mr. and Mrs. Resnick. "We know that this new space will inspire our City's children and music lovers of all ages for generations to come."
Judith Resnick is no stranger to the music scene. She is the owner of PJS Productions and is also a famed Broadway producer.
The couple's generous contribution will bolster Carnegie Hall's work in the two Studio Towers and include the Judith B. and Burton P. Resnick Education Wing. This space will include practice rooms, studio spaces and ensemble areas that will promote educational programs that currently take place in the building. The renovation project's expected completion date is 2014 and will also include refurbished back stage areas, infrastructure upgrades and storage spaces.
Nonprofit organizations that hope to benefit from large grant-giving opportunities can improve their chances of being selected for awards when they use nonprofit financial management programs. These solutions can generate data-driven reports for various stakeholders.
