Orchestra of St. Luke’s built The DiMenna Center in 2011 as New York City’s only acoustically-optimized rehearsal and recording space dedicated to classical music. It has quickly become an unparalleled resource serving the entire musical community—from soloists to symphony orchestras—through affordable, state-of-the-art facilities.

With its warm beauty, convenient Midtown location, and innovative design, The DiMenna Center is also an ideal site for galas and celebrations, workshops and seminars, corporate retreats, performances, fashion shows, film and photography shoots, and screenings.
