Carnegie Hall Citywide Concerts

St. Michael’s Church partners again with Carnegie Hall for a series of free neighborhood vocal concerts in our Church sanctuary. These are free concerts; no tickets or reservations are necessary. Seating is first-come, first-served, and the Church opens at 2:30 pm.


This year’s concerts are at 3:00 pm, not 5:00 pm as they were previously.

Devony Smith, Soprano
Nikolay Verevkin, Piano

Soprano Devony Smith has been praised by The New York Times for her “sensuous” and “strong” voice. A winner of the MIMF Art Song Competition and participant in The Song Continues, she is equally at home on the operatic stage and in the recital hall. Her performances of Susanna in Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro with The Bronx Opera Company and OperaRox Productions were called “utterly alive, natural, and beautifully sung” by Opera News. She is joined by collaborative pianist Nikolay Verevkin, who has worked with a host of vocal stars, such as Danielle de Niese, Matthew Polenzani, and Michelle DeYoung.
