LANSING, N.Y. –– In December 2020, The Savage Club of Ithaca purchased the former Faith Bible Fellowship Church on Auburn Road in Lansing. The Club has been working diligently to repair and renovate this historic building, turning it into a performance space, which will be available to the community, nonprofit groups, small performance groups, and individuals for rehearsals and/or performances.

Savage Chicken Press Release

This Saturday, June 26 from 10:30 a.m. until all the food is gone, the Savage Club will be hosting a Chicken BBQ at the Lansing Town Hall. In addition to the food there will be Live Music by the Savage Club Folk Band and the Tarps.

The proceeds from this Chicken BBQ will help to support that effort, as well as fund our music and arts grants. We are grateful for your support for the performing arts in our community.

Happiness through music and the performing arts

The Savage Club of Ithaca performs annually at the Cornell Reunion Show, Little Apple Fall Follies, and at our St. Valentine’s Day Show. Tickets sales from these performances, along with donations, help fund the Club’s Community Performing Arts Grants. In recent years, the Savage Club has awarded more than $55,000 in grants to support young local artists, performing arts groups, and other worthy organizations. Past recipients include Running to Places, Vitamin L, Unity House, CCO Youth Orchestra, Armstrong School of Dance, and Women’s Works.
