The new $550,000,000.00 Geffen Hall at New York's Lincoln center is the fourth concert hall to be built at this location. The panel will include representatives from Lincoln Center, the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, the architects and the acousticians who designed it.

Why was this project undertaken? How does this new hall differ from what was there before?

Following the panel discussion, the proceedings will move to Lincoln Center for a tour of Geffen Hall.
