Arooj Aftab, who performs on the closing night of 7th annual NYC Festival (September 3-5, 2019) talks with Festival director Lucy Dhegrae about her upcoming ResBods set with Vijay Iyer and Shahzad Ismaily, as well as how she has evolved and changed as a musician with a "post-everything" aesthetic.
In this Special Edition of ResBods Podcast we catch up with Megan Schubert—RBF NYC 2013/14—and talk about how she programmed her two sets for the Festival, as well as her taste for the theatrical, and the perennial question: to talk or not to talk from stage?

In this episode, ResBods catches up American soprano Christie Finn, who performed two seminal works of the contemporary classical repertoire on past Festivals: Georges Aperghis' complete "Récitations" (NYC '13) and Helmut Lachenmann's "Got Lost" (NYC '14). Christie discusses her journey with both of these mammoth works, and also updates us on her recent activities in Stuttgart, Germany.
