Newyorker Brentano Quartett payed in 92nd St Y two Mozarts quartett. The hall was nearly fullbooked. The atmoshere there is good, the audience quite professional. Tickets are able to book/buy with internet. The hall is easy to find with subway or Manhattan busses.

This used to be a distinguished classical concert venue, but I played a recital at the Y two months ago and still have not been paid. From all appearances, this organization has been morally bankrupt for quite a while: check out the articles regarding last summer's firing of former executive director Sol Adler for a kickback scheme and affair with...

This is a great institution that enriches its neighborhood. From music to dance, from kids to seniors can find something of interest to the body and mind.

It just doesn't happen often enough. I was very happy to see many of the Sandra Cameron alumni hot footing quickstep, American tango, and swaying boleros. Gene did a great job as DJ, actually getting a finale applause! So, if you are lucky enough to be in town for the next event drop on by...and wear those dancing shoes.

We attended the poetry season opening, a program with pianist Emanuel Ax and narrator-actor Patrick Stewart. The performances were world-class, and the seating and hall are comfortable, with clear sound. If we lived in NYC I think we would be here nearly weekly, since their presentations look terrific.

I've been a member of the 92nd St. Y since 2009. Throughout that time, they've regularly made improvements and upgrades to their facility, generally keeping it in tip top shape. The people and programming are great, and even when I was recently gone for a few months, people kept coming up to me asking how I'd been and welcoming me... More

When we knew we would be in NYC I went to the 92nd St Y website to look at the programs offered. On the night we selected, there was a panel celebrating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. It was an outstanding evening because of who the panelists speaking were. They were all instrumental in making the march... More

IT is possible to have a great night of music without having to "cross the park". The 92 street Y has a wonderful variety of music for each taste. I happen to like classical which does well with small ensembles in the 92 street space. The intimate auditorium is a good venue for this type of work.
