Limor Tomer, executive producer for music at New York Public Radio's classical station WQXR, is leaving to head up the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Concerts & Lectures series, the Met announced Tuesday (March 29). In addition to her work at WQXR, Tomer also serves as adjunct curator for performing arts at the Whitney Museum. She takes up her new duties on May 1.
During her time at the public radio station, she oversaw the transition to fully digital music broadcasting and the launch of Q2, an all-digital radio stream devoted to the music of living composers. She also served on the transition team during the acquisition of WQXR by WNYC (now operated jointly as New York Public Radio).
Tomer also is a classically trained pianist, with her bachelor's and master's degrees from the Juilliard School. She spent a decade performing professionally in solo and orchestral performances throughout the United States and Europe.
