The members of JACK Quartet lead their second chamber music master class of the 2017/2018 season, coaching Duke student musicians on works by Dvořák and Smetana.

Nelson Music Room, East Duke Building
Free and open to the public

In just a decade, JACK Quartet has become one of the most enterprising and energized new music powerhouses in the world. These “superheroes of the new music world” (The Boston Globe) pursue an expanded classical repertoire, both by performing works from pivotal twentieth-century composers in sharply designed programs and by collaborating with essential living composers. JACK continues its residency at Duke with the second of two 2017/18 concerts that highlight American music for string quartet on Thursday, April 26. Information & tickets HERE.
