Posted on: July 1, 2019

“The Erie Philharmonic has purchased the Meiser Building, located at 21 and 23 west 10th street, in downtown Erie,” writes Emily Matson in Friday’s (6/28) Erie News Now (PA). “The non-profit organization [was] able to buy the building, thanks to … donations from Erie Phil supporters. The Erie Philharmonic’s main office has been located in the building for the past three years…. The purchase of this building means they now have a permanent location. ‘It’s the best example of a local non-profit being able to invest back into the city, and finally have a permanent home right here … for the first time in more than a century,’ … said Steve Weiser, Executive Director of the Erie Philharmonic…. The Phil will take over operations of the event space, located on the first floor. It will be re-branded as the ‘Meiser Place’ [and is] scheduled to open … in September 2019. ‘It will be re-branded over the summer and will be re-launched for event hostings; bridal showers, baby showers, any sort of reception beginning in September,’ … said Weiser. The current tenants, which include Erie Arts & Culture and the Erie Escape Room, will remain as tenants in the building.”
