New Muse Duo
+ special guest Andrew Drury
475 MAIN STREET | BEACON, NY
Fridman Gallery presents a performance at our Beacon location featuring New Muse Duo + special guest Andrew Drury. The event is co-presented with the Howland Cultural Center and will take place outside on the lawn next to the gallery.
Born in October 2015 and founded by violinist/composer Gwen Laster, New MUSE4tet is an improvising ensemble offering 20th and 21st century new works and original compositions as a vehicle for social activism. Her commissioned work "Black Lives Matter Suite" premiered shortly after the inception of the ensemble and continues to draw great audiences and critical acclaim. New MUSE4tet sheds new interpretive light on familiar works and introduces audiences to the voices of the now. The artists joining Gwen are cellist Alex Waterman and drummer/percussionist Andrew Drury in a trio version of new muse.
