The DiMenna Center for Classical Music serves the musical community by providing state-of-the-art facilities for rehearsal, recording, performance, and learning. Your donation keeps spaces affordable for 30,000 musicians and allows them to focus on what matters most: quality music making.


The DiMenna Center Council

The DiMenna Center’s mission to support the musical community requires the support of many advocates across disciplines. Whether you are an entrepreneur, music lover, or someone who is enthusiastic about the creative process, join The DiMenna Center Council with an annual contribution of $1,000 and support an integral part of New York City’s cultural community. Council members are invited to exclusive events suited to individual interests, such as private rehearsals, recordings, and more.


Special Events

The DiMenna Center’s annual benefit is an intimate and dynamic event to raise funds to subsidize rental fees.  This year’s event will take place on November 30, 2016.


Hosted in The DiMenna Center’s Mary Flagler Cary Hall, this special evening features an intimate conversation between Susan Graham, renowned mezzo-soprano and DiMenna Center Council Co-Chair, and Brian Stokes Mitchell, Tony Award winner and 2016 inductee into the Theater Hall of Fame. Guests will enjoy cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and an enlivened discussion between the artists about their work, with examples of their musical influences.
