New York City Beer Week is here, and WQXR is in a New York state of mind.
Join us live online (BYOB), if you can’t make it to The Greene Space to sample some New York City craft beers provided by Transmitter Brewing, Finback Brewery, The Bronx Brewery and Big Alice Brewing while listening to the music of some of the city’s quintessential composers.
WQXR will spotlight the music of Gershwin, Bernstein and Philip Glass, as well as Dvořák, a composer who spent time in the Big Apple. Classical guitarist Pablo Villegas will be on tap to perform Bernstein’s West Side Story Suite and The Naughton sisters will perform pieces by Gershwin for piano four-hands. We’ll also hear Dvořák’s Goin’ Home played by the duo of Di Wu and Adrian Daurov, and pianist Lisa Moore will perform Philip Glass’ Mad Rush.
