On December 2, Lost Dog New Music Ensemble presents a portrait concert of composer Marilyn Shrude. The concert is at 8PM at NYC’s DiMenna Center for Classical Music, and features the Lost Dog New Music Ensemble along with an all-star lineup comprised of the New Thread and Momenta quartets, and soloist John Sampen (alto sax). The event marks Shrude’s 75th birthday by celebrating the ground-breaking composer, known for music of exquisite texture and detail. Her catalog features a large body of chamber and orchestral works, and a particular interest in saxophone. She is the first woman to receive the Kennedy Center Friedheim Award for Orchestral Music (1984) and the Cleveland Arts Prize for Music (1998).
