"We work with Merkin Concert Hall for a variety of our speaking events - from keynote talks to moderated discussions. The venue is a perfect fit. From the flawless AV and gorgeous surroundings to the gracious reception space, it is hard to find a comparable venue in New York. One of our biggest hurdles in event planning is finding a large enough reception space in New York City, and Merkin is perfect in that regard. The staff is always easy to work with, and the entire process is seamless from start to finish. I'd recommend working with the team at Merkin Concert Hall for any event, be it a talk or a concert!"
                                                                                 - Marilyn Carney, Events Manager, NY|IVY

“Merkin Hall offers a concert facility which is large enough to accommodate 450 people but small enough to create an intimate environment similar to listening to exceptional music in your own living room. The acoustics and ambience are superb.  Being situated in the heart of the cultural community of New York City creates a musical atmosphere of excellence. We have held five events at Merkin Hall and are planning a sixth. The professionalism, the prestige and the passion resound at this unique concert hall.
                                 - Nicholas Kourides, Chairman,  The Hellenic American Cultural Foundation

"Merkin Concert Hall is truly one of the most outstanding concert halls in New York City from its pitch-perfect and warm acoustics to the beautiful wood paneling enveloping the stage to its prestigious location a supreme gift for artists and audiences alike. The staff is first-rate - kind, passionate, and ready to pitch in and help in any way they can.  We hope to come back often!"                                 
                                      -  Jack Cummings III, Artistic Director, Transport Group Theatre Company

“We were thoroughly impressed by Merkin Concert Hall – from its world class facility, helpful staff, and professionalism – it was a joy to host our event there. All of our guests found the location to be extremely convenient and the space to be a perfect theater for our cabaret event. We already plan to come back again! "                                                        -  Lynnette Kloufetos, Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation
