CreArtBox presents a live concert music series that utilizes classical music to trigger a conversation about art culture, society, and more. This program unfolds the intriguing minds of musicians to new audiences serving as a gateway to enter the profound and wild world of classical music.

Celebrated by The New Yorker as one of its "art and music top picks", by Time Out as an "ensemble devoted to multidisciplinary events" and by Broadway World as “a wholly authentic, visually and aurally compelling experience”, CreArtBox has solidified its presence as one of the preeminent classical music organizations in New York City. This organization was founded in New York City in 2013 by pianist Josefina Urraca and flutist Guillermo Laporta, who continue to serve as the organization’s artistic directors.
The type of performance that most defines the identity of CreArtBox can be referred to as a “visual concert". Visual art and theatrical design techniques enhance the audience's listening experience of classical and contemporary music while respecting the original musical composition. The music serves as the creative anchor of the performance while the visual component builds the dramaturgy arch that unifies the performance into a single piece of art.

Culture Pass is a program for cardholding patrons of New York City’s public libraries, the Brooklyn Public Library, New York Public Library, and Queens Public Library. Support for Culture Pass is provided by the Charles H. Revson Foundation and the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund. To learn more, visit
