Join us for Won’t Back Down

Sunday at 4:00 PM (Pre-concert talk at 3:15 pm).

Tickets are no longer available online but may be purchased at the door.

In our 2018-2019 season, QUO presents We Are Queer. Our first concert, Never Back Down, explores how tenacity in our lives is reflected in music — from the multiple versions Beethoven and Brahms needed before they were satisfied with these works to the pioneering works of openly gay composers Gerald Busby and Julius Eastman.

  • Eastman: Stay On It
  • Beethoven: Leonore Overture No. 3
  • Busby: 3 Bagatelles for Orchestra (WORLD PREMIERE)
  • Brahms: Piano Concerto No. 1

We are thrilled to welcome Michael Sheppard as our soloist in the Brahms.

Sunday, October 14 at 4 pm

296 Ninth Avenue (at 28th Street), New York City

Join us at 3:15 PM for a pre-concert talk with artistic director Julie Desbordes, assistant director Alex Wen, guest soloist Michael Sheppard, and composer Gerald Busby.
