The JACK quartet--violinists Christopher Otto and Ari Streisfeld, violist John Pickford Richards, and cellist Kevin McFarland--met at the Eastman School of Music, where they learned standard and contemporary repertoire and pursued period, non-Western, and popular performance styles. The ensemble has studied with the Arditti and Kronos quartets and with members of the Ensemble Intercontemporain and has performed at Carnegie Hall, La Biennale di Venezia, the Lucerne Festival, and the Festival Internacional de Musica Contemporanea de Michoacan. Commissioning is integral to the quartet's mission, as are its educational presentations, designed for a variety of age groups.
