(CHATHAM, N.Y.) – On Monday, October 5, 2015, at 9am, PS21: Performance Spaces for the 21st Century will hold an official groundbreaking ceremony for PS21’s new all-season performing arts venue at 2980 Route 66 in Chatham.

After ten years of seasonal performances under a saddlespan tent, PS21 is constructing a new permanent home that will allow for year-round programming. The new venue will increase the arts organization’s ability to serve the community, the performing artists, and their audiences.

The innovative design by New Lebanon architect Evan Stoller provides a black box theater in an enclosed building, which opens up in the summer months to accommodate PS21’s annual summer performing arts festival.

The team that has been working with the architect includes audio consultant David Kahn of Acoustic Distinction; theater design consultant Matt Welander; engineers Brandee Nelson and Nicholas Vamvas of Crawford and Associates Engineering; and Paul Winnie of Arcon Construction, Inc.

The public is invited to attend the groundbreaking ceremony.

PS21: Performance Spaces for the 21st Century is a not-for-profit organization. It is located at 2980 Route 66, one mile north of the village of Chatham. For more information call (518) 392-6121.
