Made possible, in part, with support from the Department of Music & the Office of the Vice Provost for the Arts at Duke University.

JACK Quartet, whose members The Boston Globe hailed as “the superheroes of the new music world,” returns for the second year of its two-year residency at Duke, bookended by a pair of sensational performances — the first, at the Durham Fruit and Produce Company, featuring a new work by Austrian composer Georg Friedrich Haas, played entirely in the dark; the second, at Baldwin Auditorium, part of a rare double-bill with new music powerhouse sextet yMusic.

During each of its three visits for 2018/2019, the ensemble will be reading, workshopping, and recording new music by graduate students in Duke’s composition program as part of a joint venture between Duke Performances and the Department of Music, now in its ninth year. The members of JACK will also lead a master class with Duke undergraduates and participate in class visits and conversations across campus.
