Jasper String Quartet
Tickets: $20 Adults / $10 Students / $17.50 PAA Members
The Philadelphia Art Alliance presents its Classical Concert Series.
Winner of the prestigious CMA Cleveland Quartet Award, the Jasper String Quartet is the Professional Quartet in Residence at Temple University’s Center for Gifted Young Musicians. They will present a program including works by Mozart, Dvorak and Mazzoli.
The Jaspers perform pieces emotionally significant to its members ranging from Haydn and Beethoven through Berg, Ligeti, and living composers. They have commissioned string quartets from some of today’s best composers, including Aaron Jay Kernis, Andrew Norman, Nicholas Omiccioli, Conrad Tao and Annie Gosfield. Critics and audiences commend the Jasper String Quartet’s “programming savvy” (clevelandclassical.com) and they have performed throughout the United States and in Canada, England, Italy, Japan, Korea, Norway and Panama.
The series is made possible by a generous gift from the Jim McClelland Fund for the Performing Arts of the Philadelphia Foundation.
