About Brooklyn Academy of Music
Brooklyn Academy of Music, better known as BAM to New Yorkers, is a venue for performing arts located in Brooklyn. BAM is known to be a center for avant-garde performance. The institution showcased its first performance in 1861 and has constantly worked to expand its audience. The formal set-up, however, became operational in 1908. BAM is housed in a beaux-arts theatre complex and has been the talk of the town for many performing arts events. The institution is currently headed by Katy Clark and David Binder is working in the capacity of artistic director. The institute has flourished with support from the Rockefeller NYC Cultural Innovation Fund. BAM has already added a 250-seat theatre which included a classroom space and a rehearsal hall, after its successful capital campaign with the Cultural Innovation Fund. The new space of BAM is known to offer a wide range of programs for adept learners, and also provides support to emerging artists.
