Jasper Quartet - Mar 13, 2020

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 "powerful" (The New York Times). They have performed throughout the United States and in Canada, England, Italy, Japan, Korea, Norway and Panama.

Our audience will remember their gorgeous Boise performance in March of 2018, highlighted by back-to-back standing ovations for Debussy and Mendelssohn. Substitute second violinist for that concert, Karen Kim, has now joined them as a permanent member. (We heard it here first!) Many of us will also remember the truly inspirational student quartet competition they judged the next day. Their inclusive, supportive coaching exercise followed the announcement of the winners, bringing everyone together.

We can’t wait to hear them again, and tentatively expect Haydn, Dvorak, and an intriguing four-composers commission (including Joan Tower, Lera Auerbach, Chris Theofanidis and Akira Nishimura) called The Four Seasons.
