    About IceHouse Tonight

    “But the Lehigh! Those were great boating days! Almost everybody spent their evenings on the water, and music floated there … until midnight many times a week. We had carnivals on the river about once a fortnight. … The residents were as one family.”

    — Charles Schwartz, Bethlehem, 1852

    In November 2011, representatives of six regional arts organizations met to discuss the viability of creating a true sustainable arts performance series at The Charles Brown IceHouse on Sand Island. The IceHouse Tonight was the result of that meeting. The series, dedicated to the work of emerging regional artists and regional arts organizations, was established as a blend of performance disciplines including music, dance, theater, film and poetry.

    Three years and some 70 performances later, The IceHouse Tonight is steadily developing as a model sustainable arts venue; a vehicle for creative place-making. Focusing on benefit performances for arts non-profit organizations and premiere performances of new works, the series provides rental fees, the whole gate, and the proceeds of all concessions to our regional artistic partners. Just as we build our roster of regional artists and arts organizations, we hope you will join our cultural initiative by being regular supporting members of our IceHouse Tonight audience.
