This Sunday, March 20 at 2 p.m., we launch the 13-week Spring 2011 season of Q2's flagship show, Cued Up, with the first encore presentation of one of the more mesmerizing evenings in our recent live Webcast history. Hosted by Radiolab's Jab Abumrad, the show features consecutive sets by violinist Todd Reynolds and cellist Zoë Keating, two composer-performers who've amassed legions of devoted fans attracted to the musicians' inclusive personalities and signature, but complementary, DIY approaches to electro-acoustic composition.
Cued Up has become a microcosm of what we strive for Q2 to accomplish: to root itself in the fertile musical soil of New York City; to present a cross-section of bold presenters and venues; to amplify the phenomenal and innovative, local music-making and broadcast it to the world; to present the insights of a wide range of hosts; and to present exclusive opportunities for audiences, familiar and new, to interact with each other and with shows archived online for your listening convenience.
We're thrilled to partner with such cutting-edge venues as Lincoln Center, (Le) Poisson Rouge, Juilliard and Merkin Concert Hall, but are always looking to broaden our repertoire and do greater justice to our vibrant city.
