What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.


A new collaboration by Miriam Parker and Mazz Swift weaves musical voices into conversation across the centuries through improvisation and movement. Connor D’Netto’s “Dawn Wail for the Dead” is a potent reminder to honor our ancestors; the iconoclasm of Meredith Monk and Talib Rasul Hakim, and Alexis Lamb and Aiden Feltkamp’s “For Marsha (P. Johnson)” bring a queer lens on the New York downtown scene into dialogue with a new work by Rosśa Crean and Bea Goodwin for Lucas Bouk and CQ founder Andrew Yee that harkens back to queer identity in the 18th century. Also featuring Clara Kim, Giancarlo Latta, Jessica Meyer, Elizabeth van Os, Eli McCormack, Melissa Wimbish, MaKayla McDonald, and CQ founders Brian Mummert and Jules Biber.

ChamberQUEER is a multifaceted organization with the mission of highlighting historically underrepresented queer figures in classical music and providing an intersectionally inclusive space within classical music for artists and audience. ChamberQUEER curates adventurous programs and organizes committed performances of myriad queer artists from across the centuries. With a focus on building inclusive community spaces, CQ holds dedicated community events throughout each season, where queer artists and audiences alike can come together through music-making. ChamberQUEER was founded by Jules Biber, Danielle Buonaiuto, Brian Mummert, and Andrew Yee.


ChamberQUEER is committed to accessibility, and will subsidize a select number of discounted tickets for their audience. Please check back in the near future for more information on how to access those tickets. This performance will also be available as a free livestream.

This concert is supported by Chamber Music America’s Artistic Projects program, funded through the generosity of The Howard Gilman Foundation.

ChamberQUEER is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).
