Join the three composers behind Shelter for an intimate discussion and performance at the venerable Strand Bookstore!
How often do you get two Pulitzer Prize winners together in one room? David Lang won his in 2008, and Caroline Shaw has just picked up hers for her composition Partita for 8 Voices, making her the youngest recipient of the award since its inception in 1943. This evening, the two laureates will present Shelter - Lang in discussion with fellow composers Michael Gordon and Julia Wolfe, Shaw in performance with her compatriots Martha Cluver and Mellissa Hughes - in what is sure to be one of the more unique pairings to grace the stacks at the Strand's 3rd floor Rare Book Room.
