On the third floor of Carnegie Hall, the Joan and Sanford I. Weill Recital Hall is an intimate auditorium that hosts recitals, chamber music concerts, symposia, discussions and master classes. Seating 268 people, the elegant auditorium evokes a Belle Epoque salon and is 'remarkable for the symmetry of its proportions and the beauty of its decorations,' according to a review from 1891, when the hall was known as the Chamber Music Hall. In 1986, the Chamber Music Hall was renamed in recognition of the Chairman of the Board of Carnegie Hall, Sanford I. Weill, and his wife, Joan.
