“With the exquisite renovation of the Board of Officers room… [Park Avenue Armory] now has a space for chamber music, which marries excellent acoustics and an austerely elegant Gilded Age interior… [creating] an atmosphere of luxury and concentration.”
—The New York Times
A subtle environment that dramatically counters the awe-inspiring proportions and vast space of the Wade Thompson Drill Hall, the newly reopened Board of Officers Room is the latest achievement in Park Avenue Armory’s ongoing restoration that “seems destined to set a new standard, not so much for its scale, but for its level of respect and imagination” (The New York Times).
This splendid space is the ideal setting for performances of chamber works, with the pristine acoustics and intimate scale originally intended by many composers. This season, we feature signal works from the classical music repertoire spanning more than 250 years, performed by intrepid interpreters from New York and abroad.
The Recital Series is supported in part by a generous grant from Gwen Norton on behalf of the IKBS and The Reed Foundation. The Recital Series is also made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
