Unique in New York City's cultural landscape, Symphony Space -- which presents more than 500 events each year in music, literature, dance, theatre, film, and family programming -- is the only New York venue where one can see Stephen King and John Lithgow, Jhumpa Lahiri and Richard Ford, Arturo O'Farrill and the Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra, Jon Faddis and Meredith Monk, Ursula Oppens and Mark O'Connor, Jim Jarmusch and Jonathan Demme all in one house and all in one season. One of New York's preeminent cultural resources since 1978, Symphony Space is a leader in adventurous programming. Signature events include Selected Shorts: A Celebration of the Short Story, hosted by Isaiah Sheffer and broadcast on 150 National Public Radio affiliates; Bloomsday on Broadway, the annual marathon celebration of James Joyce's Ulysses; Upper West Fest, a three-week cultural extravaganza involving more than twenty neighborhood institutions; and Wall to Wall, the free annual twelve-hour musical marathon which The New York Times called a "gift to New York City." This year, Symphony Space will celebrate its 30th year as a performance space.
Symphony Space's Artistic Director is Isaiah Sheffer and Executive Director is Cynthia Elliott.
