The DiMenna Center is custom-designed for classical music rehearsal, with state-of-the-art acoustics that replicate a concert hall and can accommodate musicians ranging from soloists to full symphony orchestras and choruses. Our largest space, Cary Hall, is ideal for orchestras and choruses. Benzaquen Hall can accommodate a chamber orchestra. The Ensemble Room and Marianne Lockwood Green Room are ideal for smaller chamber ensembles. The Practice Room is perfectly suited for individual practice and private lessons.


Our spaces also meet the rehearsal needs of dance, jazz, rock, and pop groups, theater productions, and other performing arts projects, with theatrical lighting, audio playback systems, and a sprung floor in Cary Hall.


Groups such as the New York Philharmonic and American Ballet Theater, and artists such as Joshua Bell and Renée Fleming have rehearsed at The DiMenna Center for Classical Music.


Book your next rehearsal at The DiMenna Center and discover the difference it makes to work in a space designed specifically for classical musicians.

“It’s wonderful to have a rehearsal room with such a beautiful atmosphere”
