Brimming with enthusiasm, energy and dynamic expression, the Jupiter String Quartet (Nelson Lee, Meg Freivogel, violins; Liz Freivogel, viola; Daniel McDonough, cello) performs with a mastery that far exceeds what one expects from such a young quartet.
The quartet captured first prize in the eighth Banff International String Quartet Competition in 2004, as well as the Szekely Prize for the best performance of a Beethoven quartet. The quartet was also awarded Grand Prize at the 2004 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, and most recently the 2006 Austin Critics Table Award for Outstanding Chamber Music Performance.
Winner of the 2005 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, the quartet was also awarded the Jerome L. Greene Foundation Prize, the Paul A. Fish Memorial Prize, the Buffalo Chamber Music Society Prize, the La Jolla Music Society Prize, and the Cape Cod Chamber Music Festival Prize. The quartet holds Young Concert Artists' Helen F. Whitaker Chamber Music Chair, and has been selected to join Lincoln Center's Chamber Music Society Two for a two-year residency beginning in 2007-2008.
Evergreen House is at once an intimate collection of fine and decorative art and a vibrant, innovative venue for contemporary artists, musicians, and scholars. Since 1952, the museum's concert series has presented over 200 performances by renowned musicians and outstanding emerging artists in Evergreen's uniquely intimate Bakst Theatre — designed by avant-garde Russian-born artist Léon Bakst — and 1870s Carriage House. Audiences mingle with performers at a post-concert reception and enjoy a shared experience they won't find anywhere else.
Funded in large part by the Evergreen House Foundation, Evergreen's chamber music program continues Alice Warder Garrett's legacy of supporting established and emerging musicians, and inviting audiences to interact with them.
