Aaron Dalton is the assistant producer for live broadcasts and events at New York’s Classical radio station, WQXR.
After producing concerts and educational programs for the World Music Institute and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, Aaron came to WQXR in 2011 to assist with the nationally-distributed concert series Carnegie Hall Live!, as well as live events and broadcasts from The Jerome L. Greene Space, Avery Fisher Hall, Alice Tully Hall, New Jersey Performing Arts Center, the Naumburg Bandshell in Central Park, and other venues.
Aaron trained at Sear Sound recording studios under legendary studio founder Walter Sear, then as assistant engineer for tracking and mixing sessions at Stratosphere Sound with Chief Engineer Geoff Sanoff. During his studio-rat days, Aaron worked on albums such as Wilco's A Ghost is Born, Hem's Eveningland and Norah Jones' Feels Like Home, with producers including Arif Mardin, Jim O'Rourke, Ethan Johns, Daniel Rey, Adam Schlesinger and Gary Maurer. In between sessions, Aaron earned a Bachelor of Music in Music Technology from New York University.
At WQXR, in addition to work on Carnegie Hall Live!, Aaron helps produce the summer series Concerts from The Frick Collection and the McGraw-Hill Financial Young Artists Showcase, which has been on WQXR.
