Brooklyn Academy of Music

Why we
love it

BAM is a venue that can be used in a multitude of ways and throughout our longstanding partnership, we have seen the spaces at BAM transformed in ways that still manage to surprise us. There are several spaces across all three buildings that can be utilized and shaped to fit the needs of our clients through creative design, lighting, sound, and personal touches that help make the spaces feel unique time and time again. On any given day, we host an expansive variety of programming, outreach, special events, and education. It would be impossible to pin down any one type of audience or community served here, and it makes for an incredibly rich and diverse environment to work in and be a part of.

Brooklyn Academy of Music
