When we open our doors for the 2022–23 season, you will experience a completely reimagined David Geffen Hall — the result of an extensive renovation by Lincoln Center and the New York Philharmonic.

Much more than a concert venue, the new David Geffen Hall is a space to share ideas with a community of music lovers and encounter works of art that sing of the human spirit. Highlights include:

  • The Wu Tsai Theater, David Geffen Hall, with all seats closer to the stage than ever before, and vastly improved acoustics to help you get the most out of every performance you attend
  • The Karen and Richard LeFrak Lobby — expanded to twice the size of the previous one — which will welcome the community to convene, connect, and socialize
  • The Hauser Digital Wall in the LeFrak Lobby, which will feature digital artworks and allow anyone passing by to experience live concerts, free of charge
  • New spaces for smaller-scale performances — the Kenneth C. Griffin Sidewalk Studio and the Music Box
  • The reconfigured Leon and Norma Hess Grand Promenade (on the second floor), with expanded intermission seating, increased food and beverage service, and enhanced access to the Leni and Peter May Terrace
  • State-of-the-art HVAC, filtration, and air purifying systems
