Carnegie Hall is celebrating its tenth season with Breguet as the Hall’s Exclusive Timepiece.
The partnership, which is suggested to reflect Breguet’s long-standing global commitment to the preservation of arts and culture around the world, has provided more than $3.5 million in valued support to Carnegie Hall’s initiatives.
The two companies say the collaboration aims to provide valued support to music while “providing a way to exemplify the values that ties these two worlds together.”
Since the launch of its 2012–2013 season, Carnegie Hall has featured a series of clocks by Breguet, the highlight being the recently refurbished Breguet Tourbillon clock in Carnegie Hall’s Box Office lobby.
Five additional clocks throughout the landmark building represent two of the brands most notable timepiece collections: the Classique and the Reine de Naples.
Additionally, Breguet has sponsored concerts featuring a wide array of artists at Carnegie Hall from the San Francisco Symphony and Michael Tilson Thomas to the New York Pops, and the upcoming New York Philharmonic concert with Music Director Jaap van Zweden featuring pianists Katia and Marielle Labèque on April 27, 2022.
Clive Gillinson, executive and artistic director of Carnegie Hall, commented: “We are enormously grateful to Breguet for its renewed commitment and substantial show of support as valued members of the Carnegie Hall family.”
Adding: “Both Carnegie Hall and Breguet demonstrate shared values of excellence, tradition, as well as innovation. We are immensely thankful for Breguet’s loyalty to Carnegie Hall throughout the pandemic and look forward to continuing to build our long term partnership.”
Carnegie Hall reopened its doors to the public on October 6, 2021 with its Opening Night Gala, a celebratory performance by The Philadelphia Orchestra under the baton of Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin, joined by renowned pianist Yuja Wang as soloist
Breguet’s US president added: “We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Carnegie Hall.
“As a brand with a deep appreciation for the arts and the institutions that support them, we were undeniably saddened when Carnegie Hall was unable to open last year. We are so excited for one of the world’s greatest music halls to reopen its doors again, and honored to be entering our tenth season as the exclusive timepiece.”
