HISTORY
Newark Symphony Hall, New Jersey's oldest and largest showcase for the arts, today features acclaimed performances of R&B, musical theater, jazz, dance, film screenings, and more. Originally built as the Salaam Temple in 1925 by the Shriners, a Masonic order, the hall also has been home to performances of opera, symphony, ballet, and countless popular artists over the past eight decades.  

Saved from demolition in the mid-1970s by the City of Newark and a coalition of concerned citizens and corporations, the multi-use facility today includes a 2,800-seat main hall named for Newark’s own Sarah Vaughan, a 1,000 seat-auditorium/banquet hall, a 200-seat black box theatre, a dance studio, and premier office and leasing space.
