Carnegie Hall has announced that it has added two concerts to its 2022-2023 season, with each performance celebrating the life of an iconic female vocalist, integral to the Hall's history.

On Monday, December 12 at 8:00 p.m., Carnegie Hall presents Get Happy: A Judy Garland Centennial Celebration featuring Broadway stars Jessica Vosk and Andy Karl. Created by John Kinsner and adapted for the concert stage by Thiago Tiberio with Music Director Mary-Mitchell Campbell, Get Happy celebrates the life and artistry of the legendary Judy Garland. Garland's Carnegie Hall debut in 1961 has become one of the most storied evenings in the Hall's history, with the live recording going on to win five Grammy Awards, making Garland the first solo woman to win the coveted Album of the Year. On the heels of her sold-out Carnegie Hall concert last season, Jessica Vosk brings Garland's unforgettable songbook back to life at the Hall, accompanied by rare performance footageand interviews in this one-night-only celebration of an artist whose legacy continues to inspire fans around the world.

On Thursday, February 23 at 8:00 p.m., powerhouse vocalist and Grammy Award winner Ledisi pays tribute to Nina Simone with a live performance of her album Ledisi Sings Nina. Nina Simone married art and activism during her legendary Carnegie Hall performances, resulting in a historic live album and definitive recording of her civil rights anthem, "Mississippi Goddam." Taking on Simone's emotionally searing, socially conscious songs, Ledisi celebrates one of the icons of twentieth-century music. Nina Simone performed at Carnegie Hall frequently in the 1960s with her final performance taking place in 2002. For more information on Simone's history at the Hall, click here.
