We traveled from Puerto Rico to listen to the Oistrakh Symphony with Mina Zikri as conductor and were not disappointed with the program. Zankel Hall was a perfect setting for the performance.

NY Chamber Orchestra. Lovely performance. Beautiful facility with great acoustics. Smaller venue = not a bad seat anywhere.

It’s always such a pleasure to come to this amazing institution. The sound is just perfect. We saw a concert by the composer Ludovico Einaudi. Truly amazing sound. And easy to get into and out of.

I was here for a concert. While the concert and sound was incredible, the place is just stunning. It's such a beautiful building. It feels like a church or a museum verses a concert venue.

You can go to the ticket window at the venue. No fees, and they sometimes offer seats with less than perfect views (not available online) for cheap.
