Symphony’s New Space

The surplus capital of the indefatigable 1990s economy may be a memory, but its effects are still being felt in the ongoing expansion of many of New York’s cultural centers, from Jazz at Lincoln Center to the Brooklyn Museum.

Now this trend has reached all the way to West 95th Street. Symphony Space, once housed in an intimate but sticky-floored former skating rink, has recently completed a $12 million renovation. After a nearly two-year closure, the beloved performing arts group officially reopens April 8.

International companies regularly swing by Symphony Space on the Upper West Side to perform in events such as "Haiti! The Spirit of Freedom," presented this week by the Pangea Theatre Company, or the World Music Institute's varied programs, which this season include Indian, Scottish and Judeo-Andalusian music and begin tonight with Omar Bashir in a tribute to his father, the famed Iraqi lute player Munir Bashir.
