String Quartets

In partnership with a celebrated professional quartet, qualified students participate in string quartet ensembles and are coached weekly throughout the season by NYC contemporary music professionals. Students have multiple performance opportunities at high-level venues including Merkin Hall, National Sawdust and Roulette. This year, student quartets will work with JACK Quartet. Hailed by The New York Times as the “nation’s most important quartet”, the JACK Quartet is one of the most acclaimed, renowned, and respected groups performing today. JACK has maintained an unwavering commitment to their mission of performing and commissioning new works, giving voice to underheard composers, and cultivating an ever-greater sense of openness toward contemporary classical music.
