Goldman Sachs gives $1 million to Carnegie Hall, sells $1.54 billion in Chinamain
Just another day’s trading at the bank that likes to give bad mortgage-based securities. Or so they sue.
The China blip is here. The Carnegie stuff below. It helps to keep the two deals in proportion.

About The Academy
Exemplary performers, dedicated teachers, and advocates for music, the fellows of The Academy are redefining what it means to be a musician today. Fellows of the program—chosen for their musicianship, but also for their leadership qualities and commitment to music education—come from some of the best music schools in the country, including the Curtis Institute of Music, Eastman School of Music, The Juilliard School, Mannes College The New School for Music, New England Conservatory, and Yale School of Music.
As Ensemble ACJW, the fellows are an inspirational musical collective that has earned accolades from critics and audiences alike, not only for the quality of the ensemble’s performances, but also for their fresh and open-minded approach, performing a wide range of music—from centuries past to works written days before an event—in its own series at Carnegie Hall, at Paul Hall at The Juilliard School, and venues throughout New York City.
As a key element of the program, all Academy fellows partner one-on-one with a New York City public school to share their artistry with—and become central resources for—music classrooms in the five boroughs. In the program’s second year, the fellows also take part in community-based performances through Musical Connections, a program of Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute, which presents concerts and musical projects serving audiences dealing with challenging situations in New York City correctional facilities, homeless shelters, healthcare settings, and senior service organizations.
As part of a twice-annual partnership with Skidmore College that began in 2007, Ensemble ACJW gives master classes to university students and performs for the Saratoga Springs community in both concert halls and in informal settings around town. Alumni of The Academy have continued to utilize skills developed in the program, both in their own professional work and in presenting residencies as Ensemble ACJW both nationally and internationally, in such locations as Mexico, India, Abu Dhabi, Spain, and Germany. All of these activities make The Academy a dynamic program that is fostering musicians dedicated to making music central to all of our cultural lives. Visit acjw.org to learn more.
