MISSION

Cleveland Uncommon Sound Project (CUSP) is dedicated to strengthening the artistic engagement of the Northeast Ohio community by championing the creation and performance of new music. We strive to give a voice to adventurous creators and performing artists of diverse backgrounds who need a platform for their work. By presenting innovative events in a variety of settings, offering engaging programming, organizing outreach activities, and providing ways for audiences to interact with musicians, CUSP aims to ignite curiosity about new music. Our organization facilitates collaboration among artists, both local and beyond, by bringing them together for new projects and performances. Establishing deeper connections among musicians, and between musicians and audiences, will enhance and embolden the arts community in Cleveland and throughout Northeast Ohio.
