“For 15 months, Carnegie Hall’s doors have been closed to the public by the coronavirus pandemic,” writes Javier Hernandez in Tuesday’s (6/8) New York Times. “On Tuesday, Carnegie announced its 2021-22 season… The jazz musician Jon Batiste [and] the violinist Leonidas Kavakos will [each] curate a series of Perspectives concerts.… The New York Philharmonic, whose Lincoln Center home is being renovated next season, will appear four times. The conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin will … play Carnegie … twice with the Philadelphia Orchestra and twice with the Met Orchestra—and Andris Nelsons will lead the Boston Symphony Orchestra in a concert performance of Berg’s opera ‘Wozzeck.’ … Carnegie will [devote] a festival … to Afrofuturism, the genre that blends science fiction and fantasy with elements of Black history and culture…. The upcoming season will be … about 90 concerts, compared with a typical slate of 150, though more may be added…. Carnegie said it planned to require concertgoers to show proof of vaccination.” Composer Julia Wolfe will host a season-long residency; orchestras will include Israel’s Galilee Chamber Orchestra, Gateways Music Festival Orchestra, Vienna Philharmonic, Mariinsky Orchestra, Orchestra of St. Luke’s, Sphinx Virtuosi, and the New York String Orchestra.
