Symphony Space began life in January 1978 when founders Isaiah Sheffer and Allan Miller threw open the doors to an abandoned theater and invited the community to the inaugural Wall to Wall marathon concert. Passionate professionals and amateurs alike contributed their talents to celebrate the genius of J.S. Bach with twelve free hours of music. The spirit of that first Wall to Wall - which harnessed the power of the arts to inspire, engage, and build community - is, and always has been, at the core of Symphony Space's mission.
Known for its array of ground-breaking programs, including the immersive Wall to Wall concerts, the Selected Shorts readings, and our innovative Global Arts education program, Symphony Space presents a full slate of original, affordable (and free) programming to the community, and to the rest of the country through tours, public radio broadcasts, podcasts, and other new media outlets. Each season, Symphony Space welcomes more than 150,000 people to over hundreds of music, literary, film, and family performances. It commissions new works of music and literature, and present world and New York premieres. Symphony Space's Selected Shorts radio hour airs on 150 public radio stations, attracting some 250,000 listeners each week; more than 100,000 people download the podcast each week.
On its stages and in underserved schools across New York City, Symphony Space's Global Arts program helps tens of thousands of students to develop an understanding of the different cultures and the common traditions that hold us together as a global community, and its All Write! literacy program - offered at no charge - helps thousands of adults improve their personal and professional lives.
Symphony Space was founded in the belief that the arts bring people together, transcend barriers, and celebrate both our similarities and differences. Through adventurous and impactful programming, commissions, and conversations, Symphony Space continues to invigorate these guiding principles, demonstrating the power of the arts to engage and inspire.
