Symphony Space fosters artistically and culturally diverse performing arts, literary and film programs that bring artists and audiences together in an atmosphere of exploration and intimacy. Reaching audiences throughout New York City, the wider metropolitan area, and – through distribution of programs via media such as radio, recordings, podcasts and touring – the nation.

Symphony Space got its start on January 9, 1978. That day, Isaiah Sheffer and Allan Miller opened the padlocked doors to the Symphony Theatre to the hundreds of people waiting in the cold to see Wall to Wall Bach, the first of many free twelve-hour music marathons that would become a signature event. The building had started life as a public market, and at various times it was an ice skating rink, boxing arena and movie theater. It took two unique visionaries to see that this down-at-the-heels theater would be embraced by its cultured and educated neighbors and become the centerpiece of the Upper West Side Renaissance.
