A Day in the Life: Paola Prestini
Friday, August 05, 2016
How do artists refresh their creative lives? Every week, one of our favorite artists will take over our Instagram to reveal his or her favorite forms of down-time. Soon after, Q2 Music compiles the takeover into a web feature. Follow the live takeovers on our Instagram account and catch the write-up from the latest feature below.
Paola Prestini is a composer as well as the creative and executive director of new Brooklyn venue National Sawdust. In between rehearsals for her upcoming Hubble Cantata, Paola Prestini finds time to muse over John Cage sketches and snuggle with her son.
