WQXR Classical Beer Jam: B-Minor Valentine

'Craft Beer Jam'

Originally Aired: Wednesday, February 12, 2020


Our recipe for Valentine’s Day magic? Classical music paired with craft beer!

Join us as we raise a pint glass to classical music’s great love affairs and epic breakups. We’ll hear some of the most romantic music ever composed, while drinking some of the best local beers ever brewed – including a love potion or two.

You’ll enjoy performances from real-life musical couples violinist Tessa Lark and bassist Michael Thurber; violinist Stefan Jackiw & clarinetist Yoonah Kim; pianists Gregg Kallor & Dasha Koltunyuk; and a special performance by ChamberQueer.

An array of fine craft beers will be provided by Sixpoint, Greenport Harbor, Wild East and Alewife for your sampling pleasure.  So whether you’re looking for the perfect date night or trying to mend a broken heart, we’ve got just what the doctor ordered.

Hosted by WQXR’s Matt Abramovitz.
