The Composition Colloquium series hosts violist and Q2's "Meet the Composer" podcast producer for a discussion free and open to all. Violist Nadia Sirota’s varied career spans solo performances, chamber music, and broadcasting. In all branches of her artistic life she aims to open classical music up to a broader audience. Nadia’s singular sound and expressive execution have served as muse to dozens of composers, including Nico Muhly, Donnacha Dennehy, Bryce Dessner, Richard Reed Parry, Missy Mazzoli, and Marcos Balter. Recently, Nadia won a 2015 Peabody Award, broadcasting’s highest honor, for her podcast Meet the Composer, from Q2 Music, which deftly profiles some of the most interesting musical thinkers living today.
The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided.
