The Jerome L. Greene Performance Space Opens at WNYC

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

Four drum ensembles, representing African, Peruvian, Indian, Punjabi and Arabic drumming and musical traditions play as WNYC's President and CEO Laura Walker cuts the ribbon to open the Jerome L. Greene Performance Space. Located at 44 Charlton at the intersection of Varick Street, WNYC's street-level, multimedia broadcast studio will host live radio shows, visual arts, debates, concerts and everything in between.

Brian Lehrer began his morning program by listening in on the opening ceremony hosted by Leonard Lopate with Laura Walker, Executive Director of The Greene Space Indira Etwaroo, pianist Geri Allen and Songs of Solomon, a Harlem-based, award-winning choral ensemble.

WNYC conducted a competition for artwork to be installed in the Jerome L. Greene Performance Space. Since then there has been no word on what was chosen. Now that the space is open it's time to announce what artwork has the honor of being in the Greene Perfomance Space.
