The Birth of The Stone
A New Artists' Space in the East Village

The Stone is a not-for-profit performance space dedicated to the
EXPERIMENTAL and AVANT-GARDE.

All expenses are paid for by the MUSIC itself - through the online sale of special Limited Edition CDs released yearly on the Tzadik label. Each week a different musician is responsible for curating the programs with 100% of the nightly revenue going directly to the musicians.

World Premiere of John Zorn's Bagatelles
Every Sunday Afternoon At 3pm
July Through October At The Stone
From March to May 2015 John Zorn wrote 300 new tunes collected in a book of music called The Bagatelles. Like the Masada book (only more atonal) the compositions are meant to be interpreted by a wide range of musicians. Every Sunday afternoon for the next few months a stellar lineup of musicians will premiere these pieces at The Stone— with new music at every concert. Come on down!
