Symphony Space – Non-Profit Spotlight

What is your mission?

As a pre-eminent multi-disciplinary performing arts center, Symphony Space's mission is to offer artistic leadership that promotes innovation, excellence, engagement, and accessibility to artists and audiences alike.

What makes your organization so unique in the non-profit space?

Symphony Space is a home for artists. We are committed to:

  • Building and nurturing relationships with established and emerging artists
  • Encouraging innovation and excellence as the keystones of all presented and produced work
  • Fostering a creative environment that engages and inspires artists and audiences of all ages

We are dedicated to serving a broad and diverse community, as demonstrated by the stylistic range of our programming, our reasonable prices (both tickets and rentals), and by our leadership role in arts and literacy education for children and adults.

What is your organization up to at the moment & how can CUP Members be involved?

We’re gearing up for the second of four exciting multi-disciplinary projects this year, the Fuse Project, which harnesses the infectious and inspiring spirit around new works. The Fuse Project will present works that are pushing the boundaries of innovation across genres!

Symphony Space’s artistic director, Andrew Byrne, speaks more on The Fuse Project here:

We’d love to have CUP members here at Symphony Space at one of our exciting shows on the Upper West Side anytime. Please visit us at for more upcoming events.
