The Irondale Center, located within the BAM Cultural District in Fort Greene, is the first BEAT venue for our inaugural season. This 7300 square foot facility is home to the Irondale Ensemble Project and is housed within the Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church on South Oxford Street between Fulton St. and Lafayette Ave.
When I first walked into the Irondale, I was immediately impressed by how professional the space felt to me. At BEAT, we want to perform all over Brooklyn in a variety of spaces – large and small. Larger spaces are clearly more difficult to find, so upon seeing the Irondale, I was instantly interested. At The Irondale, artists will have it all. There is an expansive lighting grid, a very large playing space, a balcony, and room for over 300 people. We are THRILLED to be working with the fantastic staff at The Irondale and are very excited to present all of the BEAT artists there in September 2012!
