7th Annual Queens New Music Festival Schedule, May 16-20, 2018
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 along with invited ensembles to create a 5-day festival celebrating the diversity of styles and voices in new music today.

The mission of the festival is to promote new music in Queens by focusing on the wealth of composers, musicians,and ensembles living and working in Queens, as well as highlighting artists from other parts of New York City and the country.
