We want you to be part of our Philip Glass festival. Help us celebrate Glass's 75th birthday and the upcoming revival of his landmark opera Einstein on the Beach by calling in some Happy Birthday! wishes or leaving a story about how his music impacted your life. We'll then play your message during the festival. 

Here's how to take part:

  • Call Q2 Music's Google Voice at (646) 389-5498. Identify yourself and then share your birthday wishes for Philip Glass during this milestone anniversary or share a short story about your favorite piece of his. Don't forget to provide your email address at the end of the message, because...

All those who call in will be entered to win

Three-CD Grab Bags from OMM, Philip Glass's official label (Five Prizes, $60 each)

Your voice forms a critical element in our celebration of this titan of American music. Whether you know him only through his film soundtracks or are an unabashed, unrepentant obsessive, we want to hear from you!

Your music has inspired me to take up learning piano at the age of 40. While other novices are traing on Bach and other old masters, I am practicing your arpeggios and etudes. I hope I am half the pianist you are when I reach my 75th. Thank you and happy birthday!

A very Happy Birthday, Philip! I most enjoy Powaqqatsi. I find it more stimulating that a good latte.
