The Jupiter String Quartet—quartet-in-residence at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign—presents a virtual performance series, having chosen programs featuring contrasting styles and genres of music. Each performance moves from a minor-key quartet masterwork to a more hopeful, major-key contemporary work. The quartet members will offer personal reflections regarding each short program in hopes of providing a musical meditation for their audiences.


View each program at 12 noon on its release date and through Mar 5, 2021.
