The Stone was founded in 2005 by the composer-performer John Zorn, who also serves as artistic director. Soon after opening, The Stone quickly established a reputation as a hub for performances by a wide range of experimental musicians – artists that defy conventional categorization. A no-frills and no-nonsense space, The Stone was designed intentionally to focus attention on the artists and their music. Many have come to see The Stone as a sort of temple of music, with none of the distractions of food being sold or the hustle and bustle of servers brings drinks and checks to the table in the middle of performances. In a small and intimate environment, artists are free to perform whatever they choose and receive 100% of the ticket revenue for each and every show.

The College of Performing Arts at The New Schoolwas formed in the fall of 2015, bringing together Mannes School of Music, the iconic 100-year-old conservatory; the legendary New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, and the innovative and ground-breaking School of Drama. With each school contributing its unique culture of excellence, the College of Performing Arts creates opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaboration, innovative education, and world-class performances. As part of the formation of The College, Mannes has moved into the newly renovated Arnhold Hall in Greenwich Village, a state-of-the-art facility designed especially for the performing arts. Also housed in Arnhold Hall are The School of Jazz and the School of Drama’s BFA program. As a part of The New School, students and faculty across the College of Performing Arts experience a supportive and rigorous environment with enhanced opportunities to collaborate with colleagues in a wide array of disciplines, from the visual arts and fashion design, to the social sciences, to public policy and advocacy, and more. CoPA has over 900 degree and diploma seeking students, including a variety of programs at the undergraduate and graduate level, as well as Mannes Prep, a pre-college program with 400 students.

Founded in 1919, The New School was born out of principles of academic freedom, tolerance, and experimentation. Committed to social engagement, The New School today remains in the vanguard of innovation in higher education, with more than 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students challenging the status quo in design and the social sciences, liberal arts, management, the arts, and media. The New School welcomes thousands of adult learners annually for continuing education courses and calendar of lectures, screenings, readings, and concerts. Through its online learning portals, research institutes, and international partnerships, The New School maintains a global presence.
