Roulette’s New Home [us Brooklyn, NY]

roul.jpgRoulette :: New Space/ Same Vision :: in Downtown Brooklyn, NY ::

Roulette is pleased to announce that after seven years at our 20 Greene Street location in SoHo, we’ve finally found our own home – an elegant Art Deco concert hall in the heart of Downtown Brooklyn at Atlantic & Third Avenues. With 5,000 sq ft of floorspace, 25 ft ceilings, an 1,800 sq ft wraparound balcony, and a capacity of upwards of 600 people, Roulette’s new home will allow us to significantly expand Roulette’s core programs and services and enable us to offer a unique experience in New York City to perform and listen to cutting-edge music.

We have just signed a twenty-year lease and are about to start a six-month renovation of this extraordinary space.

* Capacity of over 600 people *
* Nearly 7,000 sq ft of space *
* Sound Art Gallery / Lobby *
* 25 ft ceilings *
* Ground floor and Balcony Seating *
* State-of-the-Art Sound and Theatrical Lighting System *
* Fewer sound limitations which means expanded programing *
* Expanded Children’s Program *
* Marley floor for Dance events *
* In house mixing and mastering facilities *
* Green Room for performing artists *

The design focus of our new space is to achieve superb acoustics and appropriate production infrastructure while preserving Roulette’s intimate connection between audience and artist. We are installing the finest lighting and audio/video systems available to make Roulette one of the best equipped and adaptable concert spaces in New York City.

Although things are moving fast, we’re still a long way from presenting our first Roulette concert. Before we can begin the space will need to go through a several month renovation, and in order to do this, we’re going to need your help. Please read on to find out how you can help.

In order to meet our goal of beginning our Spring 2011 concert season at the new space, the hall must undergo major renovations, including: installation of a new state of the art sound and lighting system, expansion of the current proscenium bandstand in order to accommodate larger ensembles, construction of new offices for Roulette staff, rehabilitation of the remaining historic balcony seating, complete overhaul of the electrical system, installation of an HVAC system, rebuilding and soundproofing of the ceiling, construction of a new Emergency Egress, and expansion of the current restroom facilities.
While Roulette will be receiving public funds to assist in some of the construction costs, its going to take help from our community in order to make this reality. Roulette Intermedium is a non-profit organization, so your charitable donation to Roulette is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowable by law.

We would like to thank Location One, James MacGregor, and Claire Montgomery for the generosity and support for the past seven years.
