This Sunday, Webster Hall’s stages will be filled with incredible performances of music genres from all over the world. This event highlights music from farreaching world regions and brings them together for celebration and (hopefully) future collaboration.

Starting out originally as a festival/ showcase, GlobalFEST has since morphed into an entire nonprofit organization offering resources from performers and artists of many different mediums. Their mission is to break down barriers between countries and promote collaboration among artists as well as entire governments. Through programs like their Touring Fund, artists are able to travel to new places, expand their market and gain exposure through performing at highly recognizable venues.

GlobalFest guests can look forward to an array of world music and interesting musical fusions. Tickets and further information are available on their website.

Grace Capobianco, CEO/Publisher of Downtown Media & Production was born to be a visionary. She has spent the majority of her life working, developing and marketing innovative media products that not only engage and inform but also bring entire communities together. Utilizing her personal vision as a professional guide, Grace started her first company, Tropical Publishing, when she was just 27 years old and from this moment on, she knew that entrepreneurship was her passion. On a perpetual quest to bring innovative and relevant news to communities, she also created, developed and published the first ever Chamber of Commerce magazine for the Palm Beaches, The South Florida Office Guide. Evolving within the realm of publishing, she moved on to launch Up The Coast magazine in the 1980’s, a guide to Jupiter, in north Florida, where the population aggrandized from 9,000 to more than 70,000 today, and then continued to hone in on niche markets with the launch of publications like Alternative Medicine and NewBeauty. Simultaneously, she launched ATSI, a telecommunications company, which sold Mitel and Siemens products to her publishing clients. The idea of Downtown Magazine NYC was born for Grace in the wake of the devastation of 9/11. A Lower Manhattan resident at this time, Grace saw firsthand the incredible sense of community the neighborhood had demonstrated during these trying times, as well as its immense strength and perseverance. She explored every angle of launching a magazine that would speak to this community but initially felt the timing was just too soon. It wasn’t until 2010 that Grace felt the community was ready to hear its voice and launched Downtown Magazine NYC.
