Exploring the Metropolis (EtM) invites you to join us for a special evening celebrating and raising funds to support the work we do in securing space for New York City's performing artists.
Come join us for drinks, hors d'oeuvres, live performances and a silent auction at Symphony House's beautiful Starlight Club rooftop space near Carnegie Hall!
Exploring the Metropolis will be honoring one of our outstanding Composers-in-Residence, Richard Carrick. Richard was a 2014-15 EtM Con Edison Composer-in-Residence at Turtle Bay Music School. He is a 2015-16 Guggenheim Fellow living in Rwanda and will begin as Chair of the Composition Department at Berklee College of Music this fall. The evening will feature performances of Carrick’s music by members of contemporary/experimental chamber music ensemble Either/Or.

About Exploring the Metropolis
Founded in 1982, Exploring the Metropolis is the only nonprofit organization dedicated to analyzing and resolving the workspace needs of New York City’s performing artists. Suitable, affordable workspace for artists is at a premium in NYC. EtM addresses this issue by placing artists in residencies at cultural and community institutions in that have under-used space. In these three and six-month residencies, artists benefit from having a dedicated space in which to create new work, free from the distractions and limitations of a home/work environment. The residencies culminate in free programs for the public in the form of concerts, classes and workshops.
Since 2009, our residencies have served 61 artists with more than $500,000 worth of free rehearsal space and cash support. Our free public programs have reached individuals of all ages in Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan.
EtM's vison is that every artist in New York City has the space they need to work. And every community has access to this work. If you care about the performing arts and want to see it continue to thrive in New York City, we hope you will join us at this very special event.
We look forward to seeing you on October 13th!
