The reviews are in and Carnegie Room concerts are not to be missed.

“One of the most enjoyable concert series in New York is actually 33 miles north of the city, in the charming Hudson River village of Nyack. There the Carnegie Room Concerts presents major artists in the warm, intimate, relaxed setting of the historic Nyack Library.”

“With the beaming bearded portrait of the wry Scotsman Carnegie, watching over the room, the space is a welcoming place to both perform and enjoy the music. To be able to see such high quality performances … in the intimate setting of the Carnegie Room is perhaps one of the best-kept secrets of the metropolitan area’s jazz scene.”

“Since Mr. Yaslowitz took over as director of the Nyack concert series in 2008, a year after it moved to the Carnegie Room from St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, the number of concerts has tripled, to three a week. The status of some programming, notably in the jazz arena, has arguably been elevated as well since the Rockland County Jazz and Blues Society agreed to curate last fall.”

“The Carnegie Room isn’t quite Carnegie Hall -the Room seats just ninety-seven people, all in folding chairs, compared to the Hall’s twenty-eight hundred. But both owe their existence to the same philanthropist; both have a seasoned-wood, Gilded Age feel; and both are good places to listen to music.”

“The Carnegie room is an elegant setting. With its warm wood details and its limestone clad fireplace, the room’s large open hearth is used as a backdrop, framing the gleaming black Yamaha Grand piano at center stage. Seating just one hundred, it is an extraordinarily intimate setting for piano or chamber music.”

“What an extraordinary concert hall. so beautiful. So much history and culture. The acoustics are tremendous! We were participating in a funding program with http://stopchewingtobacco.org. The excitement in the air was electric! The house grand piano was Magnificent. Truly an opportunity of a life time!”
