The event started in 1996 as a three-day, indoor and outdoor multi-arts festival intended to demonstrate the creative explosion of the Lower East Side and the area’s importance to culture and tourism for New York City. It employed two theater spaces at TNC plus the block of East Tenth Street between First and Second Avenues. For the past 24 years, it has been organized by TNC and a coalition of civic, cultural and business leaders and presented free to an average attendance of 4,000. This year, with obligatory separation caused by Coronavirus, it is being mounted entirely on TNC's website, with the possibility of sharing it with the world for the first time.

CULTURE HOUSE, WASHINGTON DC
HOUSE CULTURE QUARTET STREAMING CONCERT
On Sunday, May 24 at 7:00 PM, House Culture Quartet, the ensemble of Peter Fields (Guitars), Mike Thornton (Vocals), Christine Kharazian (Violin) and Fred Lieder (Cello), will offer a free live streaming concert. It's an evening of contradictions and ingenious arrangements. Cover versions of tunes by Sting, U2, Van Morrison, Prince, The Beatles, ZZ Top, Jobim and Sam Cook will be played by string musicians with intense classical chops and sung by Mike Thornton, the jazz vocalist and baritone of The Capitol Steps, America's premiere political-musical-satire troupe. The concert will rejoice in the stylistic anomaly of classical instruments blending newer, edgier music with classic songs. House Culture Quartet is the house band of Culture House, a non-profit destination and events space in SW Washington, DC formerly known as Blind Whino. Vocalist Mike Thornton is a jazz vocalist and baritone of The Capitol Steps, America's premiere political-musical-satire troupe.
