It’s nearly September!

For some reason, my brain functions exclusively on an academic calendar. This is perhaps due to my parents’ working in academia or to the nature of the concert season?  However it came to pass, I truly look forward to the fall. It’s nearly September! It’s nearly time for this heat to finally break! It’s nearly time for new seasons and new rep and new festivals, and my Pavlovian response is to buy PENS.

In celebration of the coming school year, along with my favorite season, autumn, we are having a sort of Back-To-School Special this week on Nadia Sirota on Q2. All week long, we’ll feature works performed by ensembles from conservatories and universities around the world, as well as by established groups who met as students.

I can’t wait for the 2010-11 season to begin. I’m particularly thrilled for the Ecstatic Music Festival at Merkin Hall, and the new Ring Cycle at the Met. What are you excited to see/hear this coming season?

Hosted by:

Nadia Sirota
The WQXR e-newsletter. Show highlights, links to music news, on-demand concerts, events from The Greene Space and more.

Kicking off with Nico today, always a great start!

I'll be excited to see the economy turn, so somebody can actually afford a ticket to a few festivals, concerts and shows. :-)
(PS, those are pencils, not pens, in your picture. Buy a sharpener, too.)
