“Every JACK concert transcends a run-of-the-mill performance
and becomes a true event.” — Time Out New York
Known as “superheroes of the new music world” (The Boston Globe), JACK Quartet has emerged over the past decade as the go-to ensemble for contemporary music with their impeccable musicianship, intellectual ferocity, and a take-no-prisoners sense of commitment. This virtuosic young ensemble perform the world premiere of FLiGHT, a fully-staged event with string quartet, real-time computer-derived sound, readings, and projections to explore humankind’s aspiration to fly, with music by Pulitzer Prize-winner Roger Reynolds, video by Ross Karre, and electronics by Paul Hembree.
