The historic Nelson Grange building converted into the The Nelson Odeon, a renovated small community-minded center for performances, nestled in the scenic rolling hills just to the east of Syracuse. Along with promoting local music from across upstate New York, one of the Odeon’s main missions is in bringing well respected regional, national, and international acts to the Central New York area to play for music lovers and music discoverers alike. Inside it's century-old wooden walls breathes a warmth that begs music to flow through and off of. The hall had a stage installed many years ago, complete with footlights and curtains, purpose-built to entertain audiences, from music to plays to speeches. Going unused for decades, the Nelson Odeon breathes new life into the hall from the stage and entertain audiences again as it was intended.
The hall gives the audience an up close and personal experience with the music and artists that play here. We have hosted shows for a wide variety of artists including Hurray for the Riff Raff, Le Vent du Nord, Peter Mulvey, Band of Heathens, Jonathan Edwards, and Lost Bayou Ramblers, just to name a few.
