The Yale School of Music and Q2 Music announce a new partnership. Q2 Music, which is dedicated to the music of living composers, will broadcast music by Yale faculty and students, recorded live from the New Music New Haven concert series.New Music New Haven presents new works by graduate students in composition, and this partnership will bring students’ works to a broader audience. In addition, NMNH programs feature an established living composer, either YSM faculty or guests, and these featured works will be part of the broadcast partnership as well.

“Student composers are making some of most beautiful, inventive music today, music that deserves to be heard,” says Q2 Music’s Alex Ambrose. “Q2 Music has a commitment to working with younger composers and to serving those in the formative stages of their career. It’s exciting to share  the caliber of music-making from our neighbors at the Yale School of Music’s New Music New Haven series with an online audience, introducing listeners everywhere to the next generation of composers.”

Martin Bresnick, the director of the composition program at YSM, said: “Our Q2 Music partnership is an aural window to the world. It will reveal the sounds of the Yale School of Music’s New Music New Haven series to attentive listeners, and through that open window we hope to hear back from the connoisseurs and amateurs we know are out there.” MORE
