The JACK Quartet kicks off the inaugural season of JACK Frontiers at The New School’s John L. Tishman Auditorium. Performances feature recently-commissioned works from composer-collaborators Lester St. Louis, Clara Iannotta, Tyshawn Sorey, and Catherine Lamb. JACK Frontiers is a vehicle for the JACK Quartet to bring distinctive voices, that challenge the norms of concert music, into conversation with audiences. Crafted through years of close collaborative relationships and designed to bring new perspectives into the spotlight, Frontiers introduces dynamic creators to the JACK community and expands the notion of what a string quartet can be.
