OSH offers a surprising array of performances from both emerging and established artists throughout the year. Indoor events are held in our Great Room, an intimate space with amazing acoustics where audiences and artists can connect in a personal way.  And our outdoor space allows hundreds of people to experience professional performances for free. Upcoming events can be found on our calendar.

As an arts incubator, we allow time and space for the creative process and we help our partners become stronger organizations.  Artists and arts groups can email info@theoldstonehouse.org for information about working with us.

In addition to arts performances, we host art exhibits and other community events year-round.

Music

Regular music series include:

  • The Good Coffeehouse – a monthly roots music series featuring performers including Gathering Time, Woody Mann, James Reams and the Barnstormers, Triboro and Pat Wictor, among others, produced by Frank Molcaldi.
  • Brooklyn Traditional Slow Jam – a monthly acoustic instrumental slow jam that meets on First Wednesdays at 7 pm.  Sign up for the meet-up!
  • PhiloSonia –  an innovative concert experience, designed to create a personal connection between audience members and classical music, produced by Stani Dimitrova.

Theater

We host our hugely popular residency with Piper Theatre every July — featuring equity showcase productions ranging from works by Shakespeare to contemporary musicals and dramas.  We’re also the home to Piper’s energetic workshop program, which provides a creative space for more than 200 children ages 6 to 16 every July, as well as afterschool programs during the school year. Our tri-season residency program focuses on theater for young people and their families, working with companies including Spellbound Theatre, New York’s award-winning company devoted to creating original, multi-disciplinary performances for very young audiences.

Social History

Contemporary programming that draws on our past creates an engaging and relevant link to the history of the Old Stone House. Join us for our Brick Oven Brooklyn Meet Ups to bake or roast something delicious at our outdoor hearth, or one of our anything-but-ordinary events that have included narrative embroidery workshops, beer and bread tastings, reenactor baseball games, the bi-annual Bike Jumble or the Kings County Fiber Festival.
