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.
UPDATE April 20th, 2020 All of us at the Nelson Odeon like most or all of you feel as if we are in a holding pattern entirely out of our control. As the global coronavirus pandemic continues to linger and spread we find ourselves with contradictory direction or guidance from the current federal administration. We are continuing to schedule shows for the Fall 2020 Season and Winter / Spring 2021 but have no clear idea what the social guidelines will be during those times. Social gathering will more than likely remain restricted in New York State until wide spread testing and or vaccinations for the coronavirus come about. We will continue to follow our state guidelines and those of the CDC and keep you posted. In the meantime please stay safe, be kind, and support independent musicians that you love when you can.
