Queens New Music Festival: Two Sides Sounding
New music ensemble Two Sides Sounding presents BrooklynQueens Expressway, a concert featuring vocalists Daniel Neer and Eleanor Taylor with pianist Mila Henry in works that explore life in Brooklyn and Queens through snapshots of New Yorkers' everyday modes of transportation. The program includes the world premiere of BQE, an urban cantata by composer Robinson McClellan and lyricist Daniel Neer, which juxtaposes the tempestuous relationship of master city builder Robert Moses and the writer/activist Jane Jacobs, with the controversial planning of one of New York City's most audacious super-highways: The Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.

Also featured are two world premieres inspired by the recent destruction to the Queens and Brooklyn coastline by the effects of Hurricane Sandy: Chandler Carter's Far Rockaway and Patricia Burgess' Red Hook, set to poems by Daniel Neer. Tom Cipullo's G is for Grimy: An Ode to the G Train (with special guests mezzo-soprano Hayden DeWitt and tenor Brandon Snook); Eric Moe's Rapid Transit; and Gabriel Kahane's Coney Island Avenue round out the program.
