Original Music Workshop is a venue for young musicians and composers of new classical, jazz and experimental music to perform and record their work. It will house an acoustically-driven chamber music hall consisting of a double-height space with surrounding balcony that will seat approximately 200 patrons. Conceived as a jewel set within the brick envelope of a former sawdust factory, the venue seeks to combine the historic European concert hall model with the late bare-bones black-box model, where the crafted beauty and performative ornament of the former meets the experimental programming and roughness of the latter.
