The Jupiter String Quartet chose its name because Jupiter was the most prominent planet in the night sky at the time of the group’s formation and the astrological symbol for Jupiter resembles the number four. As they enter their eleventh year of making music together, this tightly knit ensemble has firmly established itself as an important voice in the world of chamber music. The Jupiters will be joining the faculty of the University of Illinois as String Quartet-in-Residence this year. In addition, they hold visiting faculty residencies at Oberlin Conservatory and Adelphi University, and will continue a multi-year residency at Atlanta’s beautiful Spivey Hall. The Quartet performs across the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, and the Americas. They have enjoyed playing in some of the world’s finest halls, including New York’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, London’s Wigmore Hall, Boston’s Jordan Hall, Mexico City's Palacio de Bellas Artes, Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center and Library of Congress, and Seoul’s Sejong Chamber Hall.
In addition to its formal concert schedule, the Jupiter String Quartet places a strong emphasis on developing relationships with future classical music audiences through outreach work in the school systems and other educational performances. They believe that chamber music, because of the intensity of its interplay and communication, is one of the most effective ways of spreading enthusiasm for classical music to new audiences.
