the project

Formed in 2018, fp Creative is a collective of classical and experimental musicians who self-produce concerts, in collaboration with a wide variety of artists, to inspire and connect with curious audiences. 

For our second season, our goal is to establish and grow our creative community. Through our new residency and curatorial opportunities, artists will have the support they need to fully express themselves and build a relationship with the Cleveland community. 

New programs for artists:


Emerging Artists-in-Residence: a year-long residency for bold, motivated musicians in Northeast Ohio. The residency offers highly personalized professional development and performance opportunities. We are thrilled to have Catharsis Winds as our inaugural Emerging Artists!

Guest Curator/Producer Program:  This program is designed to empower local and guest artists by offering the role of Artistic Director. We will support these guests by funding, co-organizing, marketing, and producing their unique projects.

Visiting Artist Series: This series will be a platform for visiting artists to engage with new, active audiences.


Our upcoming season will be housed in the sprawling Snap House Studios within the Historic ArtCraft building near Downtown Cleveland. Sweeping views of the city skyline will accompany our productions in a fully accessible location.  


A donation of any size can impact any of these programs or operational fees.

As a grassroots organization of ambitious artists, we represent a wide range of voices, ideas, and backgrounds so your contribution will influence an important and relevant cause!

why we're doing it

There is a palpable desire to discover and broaden alternative performance opportunities and experiences in Cleveland.

There are no organizations in Cleveland that offer resources to musicians to experiment, collaborate, and engage with audiences in new ways.

We will champion this growing community of artists and in doing so, create and perform compelling, authentic work that will inspire and connect us to curious audiences.
