Jupiter String Quartet returns to Chamber Concert Series

Publication Date

The Jupiter String Quartet will return to Memorial Chapel as part of the College's Concert Series on Friday, Jan. 17 at 8 p.m.

The Jupiters, who were praised by the Washington Post for their “razor-edge ensemble work and imaginative depth,” will play Haydn’s delightful Quartet in G Minor, Op. 74, No. 3 “Rider,” a new quartet by Dan Visconti – Ramshackle Songs (inspired by the songwriters of Tin Pan Alley), and one of Schubert’s chamber music masterworks, the Quartet in D Minor, D. 810 “Death and the Maiden.”

The quartet, made up of violinists Nelson Lee and Megan Freivogel, violist Liz Freivogel, and cellist Daniel McDonough, has performed in many of the world’s great venues including New York City’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, London’s Wigmore Hall, Boston’s Jordan Hall, Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center and Library of Congress and Seoul’s Sejong Chamber Hall. An Avery Fisher Career Grant-winner, the Jupiters hold multiple residencies including those at the University of Illinois, Oberlin College, Adelphi University and at Atlanta’s Spivey Hall.

Individual tickets are $25 or $10 for students. For information, call (518) 388-6080 or click here.
