• It’s an exciting time at Mannes.

    We have joined the Jazz and Drama schools downtown in Arnhold Hall (55 West 13th Street) as part of the College of Performing Arts at The New School. In our new home, Mannes students can expect the same intimate environment and exceptional education they currently enjoy, and they will also have the following benefits:

    • Brand-new facilities: Students will learn in custom-built, state-of-the-art classrooms and performance and practice spaces.
    • Enhanced opportunities for collaboration: This move puts Mannes students into close proximity to other New School colleges. This means more collaboration than ever between our students. Events like the performance of Il Postino, which resulted from a partnership between students and faculty from Parsons and Mannes, will take place more and more often.
    • Greenwich Village: This downtown location is one of the most artistically vibrant places in which to study anywhere. We encourage our students to explore and take advantage of everything this creative, inspiring neighborhood has to offer.

    In addition, The New School’s neighbors in the Village will now have access to free and affordable performances and world-class classical music preparatory training.

    Stay tuned for more information about the move, and be sure to join us for one of our concerts or other public programs offered at Mannes.
