The Frick Museum is planning to dismantle its music room, built in the 1930s, and turn it into gallery space.
The music room is one of the most beguiling performance spaces in New York City. I’ve attended only one concert there, Wolfgang Holzmaier’s super recital in 2014, and it was one of the rare times I’ve had a stateside experience comparable to the intimate music rooms of European palaces.
Go to SavetheFrick.org to sign a petition protesting this loss to NYC culture.
There’s top-rung, interesting programming there all the time, so I mean it’s a loss of venue and a loss of cultural and architectural landmark.
Not cool at all.
