Aaron Davis Hall

Aaron Davis Hall is Harlem's principal performing arts center. This three-theater complex serves ethnically diverse audiences with performances that are multi-cultural in focus, including classical, jazz and Latin music, dance, theater, literary readings and performance art. Some 35 companies, including Dance Theatre of Harlem, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, Opera Ebony and the Boys Choir of Harlem, have made the hall their home.

Performance series include: New Faces/New Voices/New Visions, showcasing novel trends in the performing arts; the International Series, which encourages youngsters to love the performing arts from an early age; the Jazz Institute of Harlem, celebrating that famous neighborhood's many decades of cultural and musical innovation; and the Harlem Film Festival, which screens the work of filmmakers of African descent.

Aaron Davis Hall, completed in 1979, was designed by Abraham W. Geller. A mid-1990s renovation has made it the most technologically advanced performance facility north of Lincoln Center. The adjacent City College campus, with its towering cathedral and Neo-Renaissance courtyard, is also of architectural interest.
