8th Annual Queens New Music Festival Schedule: May 14-19, 2019

Updated: Apr 26, 2019

RAM supports the creation and performance of new music through the Queens New Music Festival. This festival, which was first produced in 2012, is an annual event that brings new music front and center into Queens. Each year, RAM invites ensembles to participate and accepts dozens of concert proposals from various artists. RAM then selects and curates the proposals, and, with the invited ensembles, creates a multi-day festival celebrating the diversity of styles and voices in new music today.
