Music & Documentary

An evening with Jad Abumrad :: Host of WNYC’s Radio Lab

May 27 | 7 pm

 

Jad Abumrad, host of WNYC‘s Radio Lab, curates an evening of audio to explore the brilliant but murky intersection of music, sound and storytelling. Jad will offer his perspective, and play pieces, investigating the ways marrying music and words enhances or manipulates a story.

A little more about Jad Abumrad

 

The son of a scientist and a doctor, Jad Abumrad did most of his growing up in Tennessee, before studying creative writing and music composition at Oberlin College in Ohio. Following graduation, Abumrad wrote music for films, and reported and produced documentaries for a variety of local and national public radio programs, including On the Media, PRI’s Studio 360 with Kurt Andersen, Morning Edition, All Things Considered, and WNYC’s “24 Hours at the Edge of Ground Zero”. The Ring & I, an insightful, funny, and lyrical look at the enduring power of Wagner’s Ring Cycle which he produced and hosted, aired nationally and internationally and earned ten awards, including the prestigious 2005 National Headliner Grand Award in Radio.
