In response to the global pandemic in 2020, we are experimenting with a new series of free, online events called Chamber Music Conversations from the Clark, which combine programs recorded specifically for our audience and conversations with the musicians. Bruce Whiteman, the former Head Librarian at the Clark and author of the much beloved program notes, leads the discussions with the musicians.

Join us for an exclusive online event featuring a concert performed by the Jupiter String Quartet just for our audience, followed by a live Q & A with the musicians moderated by Bruce Whiteman, Clark Librarian Emeritus. Audience members will have the opportunity to pose questions via Zoom Group Chat.

The Jupiter String Quartet is a particularly intimate group, consisting of violinists Nelson Lee and Meg Freivogel, violist Liz Freivogel (Meg’s older sister), and cellist Daniel McDonough (Meg’s husband, Liz’s brother-in-law). Now enjoying their 19th year together, this tight-knit ensemble is firmly established as an important voice in the world of chamber music. The New Yorker claims, “The Jupiter String Quartet, an ensemble of eloquent intensity, has matured into one of the mainstays of the American chamber-music scene.”
