WQXR Presents: Beginner’s Ear WQXR Presents: Beginner’s Ear

February 7, 2020

Friday February 7 2020 • 12:30pm – 1:30pm


WQXR presents Beginner’s Ear, a guided, live music meditation series every Friday from January 17 through March 6. Each meditation will feature live music from a different artist.

Dive into an hour of lunchtime bliss with guided meditation and a live performance of baroque duets and trios performed on period instruments. The violinists Katie Hyun and Beth Wenstrom initiate a musical conversation that links the 18th-century world of Bach and Corelli to the contemporary one of David Lang.

Unplug and recharge your batteries during a 60-minute deep dive into the art of listening with guided meditation and live music. Beginner’s Ear brings you closer to the music by opening the mind to both silence and sound.  Through guided meditation, participants reach a deep state of attentive calm, out of which a live performance unfolds with visceral beauty.

Hosted by Corinna da Fonseca-Wollheim. Meditation led by Thomas Droge, founder of the Pathfinder Institute.
