“Sleeping Giant” at Q2

Sleeping Giant” at Q2
Cued Up on Q2 is a series of concerts recorded live in New York City.

Featured now is Sleeping Giant, “…a collective of five young, Yale educated, up-and-coming composers, including Timothy Andres, Ted Hearne, Jacob Cooper, Christopher Cerrone and Robert Honstein….” so Q2 tells us.

“Sleeping Giant have had their compositions performed by groups from the Minnesota Orchestra to the Knights and from the New York City Opera to the NOW Ensemble. Having emerged from Yale with a number of awards and prizes under their belts, these five young men are rapidly gaining notice for their daring innovations, stylistic range and acute attention to instrumental nuance.”
