LISTINGS live and livestreamed STORIES profiles, previews and interviews RECORD REVIEWS and Listening Room The Queer Songbook Orchestra PHOTO: ROYA DELSOL “The QSYO’s approach, however – an approach based on selflove, connection and community-building – serves an important pedagogical purpose, as it allows young musicians of all backgrounds to experience a training program based in joy, rather than in competition with one another. …” see page 29. We chose this photo because of all the images in this edition it was the one that spoke to us sweetly of ”comfort and joy.” We love the warmth, intimacy, and safety it evokes, especially at a time of year when we need music-making and the embrace of our many kinds of families to sustain us from the Solstice’s longest night of the year until the light begins to return, around Groundhog / Valentine's Day.
