Merkin Concert Hall at Kaufman Center

Nestled midway on West 67th between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue is a treasure house of music and education: the Kaufman Center. Within the Center is a gem, Merkin Hall, a 450-seat performance space boasting unparalleled acoustics and a welcoming ambience that’s been compared to “an enormous living room.” Named one of the “Top Jazz Venues in New York,” by AllAboutJazz-New York in 2006, this year Merkin celebrates its 30th anniversary.

An innovative spirit offering a broad spectrum of music has always characterized programming at Merkin. Director Gregory Evans, who says their emphasis is “more on the artist than the repertory,” is himself a French horn player and jazz musician. “I look [for] the unfamiliar and the eclectic to showcase a lot of good local talent and some from out-of-town,” and “new music on the edgier side of things.”
