Live Stage: In honor of Elliot Sharp’s 60th [us Brooklyn, NY]

m8tj9nfo2xi69jfm1.jpgISSUE Project Room proudly presents E#@60: A Benefit Concert Honoring Elliott Sharp’s 60th Birthday :: Friday, March 4, 2011: at Issue Project Room, 110 Livingston, Brooklyn :: A One-Night Celebration Featuring Internationally Renowned Artists and World Premiere Performances :: Hosted by Jo Andres and Steve Buscemi with performances by Elliott Sharp, JACK Quartet, Sirius Quartet, Jack Womack, and Tracie Morris ::

Known as “Brooklyn’s leading avant-garde venue,” (Wall Street Journal) ISSUE Project Room presents a spectacular music- and star-filled evening on Friday, March 4th, honoring the 60th birthday of the prolific composer, innovator, and guitar virtuoso Elliott Sharp. Bookended by a cocktail reception and after-party, the concert premieres two new works by Sharp including: Trinity for Golden Globe® Award-Winning actor Steve Buscemi (ISSUE board member) and film/dance/light artist Jo Andres; and Occam’s Razor for double quartet performed by post-classical music avatars JACK Quartet and Sirius Quartet.

“Having this celebration at ISSUE Project Room is both an exciting honor and significant in that my history with this great venue extends back to its ‘beginnings’,” explains Sharp, supporter of ISSUE since its start in the East Village in 2003. “I look forward to being one of the first to premiere works in its new home.”

This marks the first benefit event to be held at ISSUE’s future location at 110 Livingston in Downtown Brooklyn, a beautiful 1925 McKim, Mead, and White theater space to which ISSUE was awarded a 20-year rent-free lease. In 2009, ISSUE was awarded a $1.133 million grant from the Brooklyn Borough President towards the estimated $2.5 million necessary. ISSUE has been working with WORK Architecture Company and ARUP to develop the design concept for the space. March 4 Benefit attendees will enjoy the first public preview of the new designs for the space.

Proceeds from the benefit will support ISSUE’s year-round critically acclaimed programs supporting hundreds of artists in the creation and presentation of groundbreaking new work. ISSUE gratefully acknowledges support from the following organizations: HBO, BOMB Magazine, Brooklyn Vegan, Sixpoint Craft Ales, and Tillett Lighting Design
