(New York, New York, October 3, 2012)— Carnegie Hall unveiled a specially crafted Breguet tourbillon clock in its Morse Lobby prior to the concert, as part of a new partnership with the historic watch company.

The gala benefited Carnegie Hall’s artistic and education programs and included a dinner at The Waldorf Astoria’s Grand Ballroom following the concert. With the start of the Hall’s 2012–2013 season, Breguet is now the Exclusive Timepiece of Carnegie Hall.
This Breguet clock is the first timepiece to be installed inside a commercial building in the United States and It marks the first addition to Carnegie Hall’s lobby since the landmark’s 1986 renovation.
Carnegie Hall opened its 2012–2013 season with a sold out gala benefit concert featuring the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Music Director Riccardo Muti performing Carl Orff’s powerful choral work Carmina Burana. The performance also featured the Chicago Symphony Chorus and Chicago Children’s Choir with soloists, soprano Rosa Feola, countertenor Antonio Giovannini, and baritone Audun Iversen. The gala, which was attended by more than 500 guests, raised nearly $2.7 million in support of Carnegie Hall’s artistic and education programming.
