Irene Diamond Education Center


Our many educational programs are housed in the acoustically-treated multi-functional classrooms of The Irene Diamond Education Center. The Agnes Varis and Karl Leichtman Studio functions as a full service recording facility.

About the Venue

The Irene Diamond Education Center
Located at the “House of Swing” along with Frederick P. Rose Hall’s three world-class performance venues, the Irene Diamond Educational Center is a strategic and unprecedented pooling of educational, rehearsal and recording resources. The Louis Armstrong Classroom is the smallest of the three spaces within the Irene Diamond Education Center, and can be utilized for a range of educational and other activities. Twice the size, but similar in décor and function, the Edward John Noble Foundation Studio provides room for larger groups.

The Agnes Varis and Karl Leichtman Studio
The Agnes Varis and Karl Leichtman Studio is a full-service, state-of-the-art 96-track digital recording and post-production facility operated by XM Productions/Effanel Music. One of the largest recording studios in New York City, this room features a sprung wooden dance floor, an observation balcony, and enough capacity for an entire symphony orchestra. Designed as an integrated component of the Frederick P. Rose Hall facility, the Varis and Leichtman Studio is wired to all of the performance spaces in order to facilitate ease of professional recording.
