QUEENS NEW MUSIC FESTIVAL
Brooklyn-Queens Expressway

Eleanor Taylor, soprano
Daniel Neer, baritone
Mila Henry, piano

with Hayden DeWitt, mezzo-soprano
Brandon Snook, tenor
and Lucas Wong, piano

With original photography and videography by Ted Gorodetzky

TSS has its first show as part of the Queens New Music Festival, presented by Random Access Music. BROOKLYN-QUEENS EXPRESSWAY features works that explore life in Brooklyn and Queens through snapshots of New Yorkers’ everyday modes of transportation.

The program includes the 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. Through the imagined communiqué of letters, phone calls, memos and town hall meetings, the aggressive modern-city vision of Moses is matched by the grassroots-oriented social consciousness of Jacobs, portraying two radically different visions of urban development and renewal during the second half of the Twentieth Century. 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,”  Eric Moe’s “Rapid Transit” and Gabriel Kahane’s “Coney Island Avenue” round out the program.
