Premiering Off The Grid

Composer Suzanne Farrin Hosts a Four-Part Series of Your Music

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

This Friday, Feb. 1 at 3 pm, join host Suzanne Farrin for Off the Grid – a special four-part series on Q2 Music that runs Fridays at 3 pm in February. Off The Grid is a program that is made up of music received directly from you, Q2 Music listeners, who have graciously sent in recordings to our ongoing open call for new music. We've listened. Now we're ready to play your music.

We hope that Off the Grid offers a counter-argument to reports of classical music's impending demise. Its longevity is the result of your inventiveness and endless imagination, both as listeners and composers. You will hear private, unreleased recordings, lesser-known but captivating composers and radically new sonic worlds.

Tune in to meet some of the great new voices in the Q2 Music family, as chosen and hosted by Suzanne Farrin. And don't forget our ears are always open for the best and brightest in new music, so if you have something you'd like us to consider for general rotation and/or the next season of Off The Grid, send it along!
