NEW YORK Carnegie Hall is cutting its 2009-10 schedule by 10 per cent because of the recession, instituting a hiring freeze and slashing $4 million from the budget for its current season to keep it balanced.

Carnegie executive and artistic director Clive Gillinson says next seasons budget would be even lower than the revised $76 million for this season. Carnegie announced a schedule of 180 concerts, down from about 200 in recent seasons.

Susan Brady, the halls director of development, says individual giving for this season was down 17 to 18 per cent to $11 million. She says corporate donations had remained steady and that overall giving was about $30 million.
