The borough’s past and present will sound so beautiful. On April 9, Jamaica’s Center for Mediation Services will host Queens-based musicians who will play songs celebrating composers who once lived in the world’s most diverse county. The program will feature ”Wind Quintet” by Beata Moon (Forest Hills), “Quintet No. 2 for Winds” by James Cohn (Douglaston), “The Stuff of Comets” by Dylan Glatthorn (Astoria) and “Sincerita” by Christopher Caliendo (Jackson Heights). But the beat goes on. The concert will include music by past residents, including jazz by Louis Armstrong (Corona), the classical music of Soong Fu-Yuan (Briarwood), rags by Scott Joplin (buried in East Elmhurst), “Pavanne” by Morton Gould (Richmond Hill) and music from the Harry Potter films by John Williams (Flushing).
