The Look & Listen Festival (L&L) is an annual 3-concert New York City event presenting new music in art galleries. The goal is to expand audiences for both art forms. For the second consecutive year, Look & Listen has partnered with Pratt Institute’s Pratt Manhattan Gallery for its three concerts –including three world premieres– to be held in conjunction with the Gallery’s “Graduate Fine Arts 2013” exhibition.
