Violinists Nelson Lee and Megan Freivogel, violist Liz Freivogel (sister of Meg), and cellist Daniel McDonough (husband of Meg, brother-in-law of Liz) are in their thirteenth year of making music together.
According to The Washington Post, the quartet embodies the enthusiasm and intensity of interplay that characterizes chamber music at its best and brings to their performances “equal parts daring and understanding.”
“The Jupiter String Quartet is one of the leading chamber music ensembles of its generation,” says Catherine Hayden, series producer. “Besides having an international concert career, the quartet members are artists-in-residence at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana and maintain private studios and responsibility for running the chamber music program.”
The Jupiter Quartet has won the Fischoff Grand Prize, Young Concert Artists International Auditions, received an Avery Fischer Career Grant and many other awards. They recently performed all the Beethoven Quartets at the Aspen Music Festival.
The Jupiter Quartet plays in America, Europe, Asia, Canada and the Americas. Besides their residency at the University of Illinois Urbana, they also hold visiting faculty residencies at Oberlin Conservatory.
For Sunday’s concert they will perform Beethoven Quartet in G Major, Bartok Quartet No. 2 and Schumann Quartet in a minor.
Individual adult $30 ticket includes wine reception with artists after concert. $10 student ticket with ID. Service fees apply.
