The Centennial Project

Created with Sketch.

The Centennial Project: Revitalizing the heart of the Manhattan School of Music Campus.

Having celebrated its first 100 years in 2018–19, MSM looks forward to working with our community of Alumni, Donors, and Friends to continue building on our rich history.

Befitting its status as a world-class conservatory, the school capped off its campus revitalization by creating a grand new entrance on Claremont Avenue and renovating its signature performance venue, now called Neidorff-Karpati Hall (formerly Borden Auditorium).

The transformation of Borden Auditorium into Neidorff-Karpati Hall officially began in the summer of 2017 and was completed by September 2019. Naming opportunities begin at just $3,000 — but space is limited.
