Symphony Space

When Symphony Space opened its doors in 1978 with its first production, Wall to Wall Bach, it gathered together an eclectic group of musicians, professional and amateur, well-known and emerging. What began as a natural outgrowth of the cultural epicenter that is the Upper West Side—traditionally home to many actors, writers, dancers and musicians—remains a unique melding of artistry with the informality and intimacy of a neighborhood salon.

Symphony Space presents a full calendar of inexpensive—often free—programs. It presents over 200 music, dance, drama, literature, film and children’s programs every year, including the annual Wall to Wall music marathons and Selected Shorts:  A Celebration of the Short Story.

The Curriculum Arts Program (CAP) integrates arts programs into the school curriculum for New York City students. Four choices are offered:  CAP in American history, CAP in African Studies, CAP in Asian Studies and CAP in Native American Studies. Each program demonstrates through music, visual arts, dance and drama that history and culture are inextricably related. Program components include six hours of staff development; four to six artist-led in-class workshops; an artist-led tour of a museum; and one or two concerts at Symphony Space.
