NMNC: JACK Quartet Virtual Concert
October 12 : 8:00 am - October 31 : 11:59 pmFree
Available through October 31st.
Due to the pandemic, what we had intended to be the final concert of last season could not be presented in person; but the fabulous JACK Quartet will perform it and stream the video to you! We are pleased to announce this special event, Co-Presented by New Music New College and Merkin Hall at the Kaufman Music Center, New York City. Like New Music New College, the Kaufman Music Center believes that “music is essential to the human experience and a vital component of education for everyone.” Working with Kaufman, New Music New College is excited to unveil our first digital event of the fall, shot with several angles of video and recorded in full multi-track audio.
Long recognized as one of the world’s premiere new music ensembles, JACK Quartet was named Musical America’s 2018 “Ensemble of the Year,” and in 2019 received a prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant. JACK made its NMNC debut in 2008, and has become a favorite through subsequent appearances, which have included a performance of music composed by New College alums and an unforgettable performance of Georg Friedrich Haas’s String Quartet No. 3, performed in total darkness in the Black Box Theater. For this special streamed concert JACK will perform Zosha di Castri’s String Quartet, Marcos Balter’s Chambers, Anthony Braxton’s Composition 18, Clara Iannotta’s A Failed Entertainment, and George Lewis’s String Quartet 2.5.
