A festival dedicated to the music of Wadada Leo Smith. It is a source for premiering new and existing works, and the celebration of information through seminars, video and film presentation.

This is to instill information that will address the historical and inspirational sources of the new works.

CREATE occurs annually in New Haven, CT during the month of April, and later in the year in other regions in the United States. There, CREATE incorporates a community of musicians in those selected sites.

Also, each festival opens with young developing artist’ ensemble, who are assigned to compose a new work to be premiered at CREATE.

Our outreach program for young children and young developing artists takes place through the production of performances and workshops in local nursery schools, kindergarten schools and neighborhood schools of music.

All this is made possible with the support of The Doris Duke Artist Award of 2016-2019.
