“On Monday, November 15 at 7:30 pm EST, Q2 brings Icelandic art-rock together with a wild constellation of top-notch, international ensembles in a live audio Webcast of Credo, hosted by WNYC’s John Schaefer from the Church of St. Paul the Apostle.
Part of Lincoln Center’s kaleidoscopic White Light Festival, Credo features mesmerizing, lesser-known music by Sigur Rós’s Jón Þor “Jónsi” Birgisson and Kjartan Sveinsson as performed by members of the band themselves, Birgisson’s partner Alex Somers, the Hilliard Ensemble, Latvian National Choir and the Wordless Music Orchestra led by Jeffrey Milarsky.

Be there, Aloha.
