Music, Community Engagement, & Social Action: Garrett McQueen

Online
7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

In the late summer of 2016, Garrett McQueen shifted his career from a professional bassoonist to a radio host and content creator. Along the way, he discovered conversations within the world of classical music that deserved more attention. With the help of his friend and colleague, Scott Blankenship, the two created TRILLOQUY: true and real conversations that challenge the status quo of "classical" music.
