Benzaquen Hall is ideal for chamber orchestra and chorus rehearsals and recording projects, as well as chamber music performances. It is also a unique setting for intimate parties, product launches, panel discussions, staff retreats, and press conferences.

Located in New York City at the nexus of the Javits Center, Hudson Yards, Hell’s Kitchen, Penn Station, and Times Square in midtown-Manhattan, Benzaquen Hall at The DiMenna Center for Classical Music is centrally located near public transportation, parking, hotels, restaurants, and shops.

This Sunday, May 21st at 5:30pm @pathostrio will have a concert at @thedimennacenter featuring a program of all world premieres by composers @ianyhchang @clarawarnaar @phongdotcs @andrewkrycek vicente.wav and Paul Mortilla for percussion, piano, and electronics.

We're really excited to be hosting their ensemble for what is sure to be an exciting afternoon of new music, so please join us as we welcome Pathos Trio this Sunday!

Concert will be in Benzaquen Hall, and tickets can be found on our website in our Performance Calendar or in Pathos Trio's Linktree in their Instagram bio.

So happy to have The Knights (@theknightsnyc) back at The DiMenna Center with double bass virtuoso and composer Edgar Meyer (@edgarmeyer2344)! They’re rehearsing in Benzaquen Hall for their Saturday night concert at 92nd Street Y (@92ndstreety) 🎶

Conducted by Eric Jacobsen (@ejacobsenmusic), the program includes Eleanor Alberga’s ethereal and playful Shining Gates of Morpheus, Aaron Copland’s beloved Appalachian Spring, and the New York premiere of Meyer’s Concerto No. 3 in E Major for Double Bass & Orchestra, featuring the composer himself on bass! In-person and online tickets are still available at
