Pro Musica is excited to present a special double string quartet concert, featuring the Jupiter and Jasper (string) Quartets, on Thursday, March 27, 2020 at Joplin Family Worship Center, 5290 E 7th St, Joplin. Now enjoying their sixteenth year together, the Jupiter String Quartet is a tight-knit ensemble and is firmly established as an important voice in the world of chamber music. From 2007-2010, they were in residence at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s Chamber Music Two. Since 2012, they have been artists-in-residence at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana, where they maintain private studios and direct the chamber music program.
Formed at Oberlin Conservatory, the Jasper Quartet began pursuing a professional career in 2006 as Rice University’s Graduate Quartet-in-Residence. The quartet is currently the Professional Quartet in Residence at Temple University's Center for Gifted Young Musicians and the Founder and Artistic Director of Jasper Chamber Concerts. The Quartet launched their inaugural season of the series in 2016 and continued with the third season in 2018-19.
The concert starts at 7:00 PM and is open to the public at no charge with donations appreciated. The public performance of the Jupiter & Jasper Quartets is sponsored, in part, by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
