New Thread Quartet takes the stage of LeFrak Concert Hall at the Aaron Copland School of Music, for the premiere of two new works for
saxophone quartet by Queens-based composers Luke Schwartz and Pat Muchmore. Known for championing the works of New York-based composers,
New Thread will present the audience with two highly contrasting pieces, each sounding within a contemporary musical language. Muchmore’s 
Hyperoperator3 for two tenor and two baritone saxophones evokes a voluminous power full of rhythmic complexity and intensity while Schwartz’s 
Open Link in new Tab, for quartet + tape, explores the beautiful texture of tonal improvisation with occasional divergence. The hour-long
program will be framed with works by Michael Djupstrom (Philadelphia), and Marcelo Lazcano (Chile/San Diego). This concert is presented by
Queens College and is FREE and open to the public.
This program is made possible (in part) by the Queens Council on the Arts with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts
with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
