New Muse 4tet concert
Founded in 2015 by violinist/composer and Detroit native Gwen Laster, New MUSE 4tet is an improvising string quartet offering 20th and 21st Century works and original compositions as a vehicle for social activism. Laster’s commissioned work “Black Lives Matter Suite” premiered shortly after the group’s inception and continues to draw large audiences and critical acclaim. The 4tet sheds new interpretive light on familiar works and introduces audiences to the voices of the now.
This performance will include the Suite and works by modern improvisational masters Leroy Jenkins and Billy Bang, among others, and a post-concert discussion touching on the Suite, art and activism, and the creative process.
