New York, NY (February 17, 2004)–Jazz at Lincoln Center (JALC) announced today that it is seeking an operator/tenant of the recording studio housed in its new facility, Frederick P. Rose Hall (FPRH). Opened October 18, 2004, the 100,000-square-foot FPRH is the first performing arts facility built specifically for jazz, and marks the first extension of the Lincoln Center campus in ten years. In addition to jazz, FRPH will also accommodate other forms of performing arts, such as opera, dance, orchestral music and film.
Located in the new Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle, JALC’s $128 million facility will have three major venues utilizing recording services: Rose Theater (1,000+ capacity), The Allen Room (500+ capacity) and Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola (140 capacity), in addition to the interactive Ertegun Jazz Hall of Fame and the Irene Diamond Education Center, which houses the recording studio, the Louis Armstrong Classroom and The Edward John Noble Foundation Studio.
JALC’s new recording facilities are being designed and completed by “Sound of Jazz” (SOJ), a partnership JALC formed including specialists from Artec Consultants Inc. and The Walters-Storyk Design Group. Along with FPRH’s architect Rafael Viñoly, JALC has acquired a wide range of acoustical, electro-acoustical and theatrical design skills available.
The new tenant will assist JALC in its mission to integrate live music, recording, audio for video and asset management with state-of-the-art audio standards. The operator/tenant will install all necessary professional audio equipment and provide experienced staffing. The operator/tenant will also participate in all recording done on-site, working with JALC to record and archive a significant percentage of FPRH’s jazz performances, as well as periodic JALC education programs. The estimated gross revenue of the recording facility is projected to be in excess of $1 million annually.
JALC will choose the recording studio operator/tenant from all qualified candidates, both domestic and international, in April 2004.
