During the coming year, Monastery Studios – a performance space and recording studio in Walnut Hills, housed in a re-purposed centenarian church- is going to partnering with The Requiem Project (also known as the folks striving valiantly to save the historic Emery Theatre from decay and dissolution). The Emery is a very long term project and a large venue, they will be collaborating with Ric Hordinksi to do some more programming and renovations at the Monastery! “This is very exciting for me because it helps fulfill my idea of making it a more ‘community’ space,” said Ric. “The details are still taking shape, but in the near future, when we’re not recording amazing music here, you may be able to take Pilates classes, attend a movie, drop your kids off for summer camp, or just enjoy an amazing night of music or visual art!”
So, how can you be a part of this? Well, first, you can buy a ticket to see Carrie Rodriguez this coming Tuesday. Buying a ticket, not only helps out but is a symbol of what can happen at the space. “We want this very first event to be a smashing success. So please, please plan to attend and tell a few friends!”
The ticket price include an after party with food prepared by Melissa Mileto Rosenthal of Take The Cake! And, for the first time ever at the Monastery, there will be a full bar! (thanks to William Hill Winery, and Matt Smith and his team at Heidelberg). Local virtuoso acoustic music band Happy Maladies will be performing and collaborating on a few songs with Ric as the opening act.
