Jasper String Quartet

Thursday, November 21, 2019
7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Winner of the prestigious CMA Cleveland Quartet Award, Philadelphia’s Jasper String Quartet is the Professional Quartet in Residence at Temple University’s Center for Gifted Young Musicians. The Jaspers have been hailed as “sonically delightful and expressively compelling” (The Strad) and The New York Times named their latest album, Unbound, as one of the 25 Best Classical Recordings of 2017. “They match their sounds perfectly, as if each swelling chord were coming out of a single, impossibly well-tuned organ, instead of four distinct instruments.” (New Haven Advocate)

Their program includes Beethoven’s Op. 18, No. 4, Vivian Fung’s Quartet No. 3, and Quartet in D minor, D. 810 “Death and the Maiden” by Schubert.

Thalea String Quartet

Thursday, January 30, 2020
7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

The Thalea String Quartet brings together artists of Nigerian, Venezuelan, Japanese, and Canadian heritage. With repertoire as diverse as its members, and every bit as exuberant, Thalea connects with audiences on a musical, emotional, and personal level, from first-time listeners to string quartet aficionados. Top prizewinners at both the 2018 Fischoff and Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competitions, Thalea was founded in 2014 and made its U.S. début at the Kennedy Center in 2016. They have performed across North America and in Italy, France, and Belgium. “Thalea never failed to deliver a stirring performance.” - Calgary Herald

They will perform Aaron Copland’s Movement for String Quartet, a new work being written for the Thalea Quartet, Beethoven’s Op. 59 No. 2, and Three Folksongs in Counterpoint by African-American composer Florence Price.
