Lori Shepherd

  • She/Her
  • Biography

    Lori Shepherd is an avid chamber musician, collaborator, and co-creator of the Ladies’ Reeding Society, a coalition of chamber music ensembles whose mission is to empower, lead, and create space for underrepresented voices in the chamber music genera. In her role as clarinetist and founder with this organization, Lori plays with several groups including Trio de Bois, Peregrine Rose Trio, and the Ladies’ Quintessential Quintet.

    As co-creator, Ms. Shepherd plans to continue magnifying the span of LRS in collaborative projects that artistically explore contemporary issues and themes with a purposeful focus on those with experiences from historically marginalized backgrounds. Last season saw the performance and premiere of new music by composers Mary Watkins, Adrienne Albert, Sydney Guillaume, Alyssa Morris, Gay Kakohnen, Amy Dunker, and Juan Ruiz. This season Ms. Shepherd will appear as a featured performer on an album of works for clarinet and chamber music by composer Catherine Neville on the Polyphony label, launch the community and education engagement program extension of LRS, and continue her thriving teaching studio in Woodinville, Washington with her throng of aspiring musicians-for-life.
