CreArt Music Festival

a platform fostering new music works inspired by traditional repertoire


CreArtMusic Festival is a three-days event presented by CreArtBox in collaboration with LIC-Artists. It was presented in 2018 and 2019 at the Plaxall Gallery in Long Island City and supported by the QCA.

Directed by Queens-based musicians Guillermo Laporta and Josefina Urraca, this project aims to engage new audiences by presenting high-quality performances of new music written by emerging and established living composers (David Lang, Sebastian Currier, Anna Clyne and, Meredith Monk), as well as classical music from the 17th century onwards (Debussy, Beethoven, Brahms, Rachmaninov, Schumann). A key component of the festival is the use of innovative visuals installations and multimedia designs alongside the musical performances.

The festival lineup includes five evening concerts featuring artists from CreArtBox's roster of 20 international musicians, as well as guest artists and collaborators.

CreArtBox continues deepening on the partnerships with local businesses and other artistic communities in the neighborhood through the CreArt Magazine, offering the opportunity to publish ads or being future on it with an interview. Also offering the opportunity to sponsor our projects in exchange for adds and developing new ways to cross-promote our brands.
