    • Description NEWARK'S CULTURAL PILLAR FOR OVER 80 YEARS The historic Newark Symphony Hall, one of New Jersey's most comprehensive and respected centers for promoting arts, education and entertainment, is making a great impact on enriching the lives of the residents of Newark and the citizens of New Jersey. RICH PERFORMANCE HISTORY Newark Symphony Hall enjoys a long and rich history as one of New Jersey's oldest and largest showcases for performing arts programming. This multi-facility edifice was built by the Shriners, a Masonic order, in 1925 and was alternately known as "Salaam Temple" and "The Mosque". Historic artists of genius stature such as Arturo Toscanini, Marian Anderson, William Warfield, Lily Pons and George Gershwin performed here. In more recent years, the stage has been home to such artists as the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, New Jersey State Opera, Theater of Universal Images, Tony Bennett, Count Basie, Nancy Wilson, James Brown, Patti LaBelle, and Queen Latifah.
