“The premier destination for recording in New York. I was thrilled to walk into this beehive of activity with Orpheus Chamber Orchestra rehearsing on one floor, classes being held on another, and my eOne Music recording project in Cary Hall. The acoustics exquisitely captured what I was aiming for-clarity, depth and resonance.”
