“Symphony Space Access to the Arts Gala to Feature Wong, Cerveris, & More 4/11
Each spring Symphony Space pays tribute to the artists, philanthropists, corporations, and others who share in its dedication to providing high-quality arts programming to a wide range of audiences. On April 11, we will present the second annual Access to the Arts Awards to author E.L. Doctorow, composer Tania León, and composer/performer Arturo O'Farrill of the Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra. Symphony Space Board Member William L. Haines will also be recognized for his 24 years of leadership, which helped to shape the Symphony Space of today.”

“This year's Gala will be held at the new THREE SIXTY° in TriBeca, a dramatic location offering panoramic views of the city (near the intersection of Hudson and Canal).” “For more than 30 years, Symphony Space has produced and presented artistically and culturally diverse music, dance, literary, theatre, family, and film programs that bring artists and audiences together in an atmosphere of exploration and intimacy. Its signature events include Selected Shorts, hosted by Isaiah Sheffer and nationally broadcast on public radio; Bloomsday on Broadway; and Wall to Wall free music marathons.” [The website of the Afro-Cuban composer and conductor Tania León (b. 1943) is; she is also profiled at]
