New Music in New Places: Celebrating the China in New York Festival on Q2 Music

“Kung Hei Fat Choi! When I was in kindergarten, my super awesome teachers Ms. Danielson and Ms. Doane had us bring in paper bags, in which we cut holes three holes (a big one in the very bottom and two smaller ones on the sides), adorned with construction paper scales, and pulled over our heads to march down the hallway of our school as a giant, kindergartener-fueled Lunar New Year dragon. It was pretty much the best day of kindergarten.

It’s now the year of the DRAGON, an especially lucky year, and Q2 Music is going to help you ring it in with TONS of new music by Chinese and Chinese-American composers. Our parent station, WQXR, is hosting the China in New York Festival this week, and it is chock full of amazing radio events, from Greene Space concerts to the New York Philharmonic’s Chinese New Year performance. Over here, true to our goal of learning about new works straight from the artists’ mouths, we are featuring special guest, composer Huang Ruo, each weekday at the top of my show (12 to 1 pm), to interview some of his favorite colleagues. You won’t want to miss this!!

Xin Nian Kuai Le! Happy New Year! Come celebrate with Q2 Music and WXQR!”
