Symphony Space
Symphony Space got its start in 1978 with Wall to Wall Bach, the first of many free twelve-hour music marathons that would become a signature event. Thirty three years later, a neighborhood favorite has become a New York institution - and Symphony Space still brings artists and audiences together to make magic. A packed house listening intently as an actor conjures up the mood of a short story…the soulful notes of a jazz trumpet fading into the night...children laughing with glee at the antics of a master puppeteer...dancers creating rhythmic patterns across a darkened stage...images of cinematic brilliance flickering across a screen…families coming together to watch their kids rock out...this is Symphony Space today.
