The Orchestra of St. Luke’s in New York City has received $1 million from Virginia James, a longtime supporter of the orchestra, to name the Learning and Media Studio at the DiMenna Center. “The activities that take place in the DiMenna Center’s Learning and Media Studio align with my strongly held belief that classical music experiences are paramount to a child’s development,” said James. The studio is used primarily for education and recording, and has technological capabilities to support interconnectivity to the center’s other spaces. The Orchestra of St. Luke’s owns and operates the DiMenna Center, which opened in 2011 with the goal of providing state-of-the-art rehearsal and recording space to classical musicians in New York City, at subsidized rates.
