June 10, 2019: JACK gave the American Premiere of Catherine Lamb's First String Quartet at the Ojai Festival. As a part of building up to the premiere of our CMA commission in Dec. 2019, this was an important delving into her world as we workshop the still uncompleted new work.

The spring and summer have seen our collaboration with Catherine Lamb taking off! In May, we explored the harmonic spiral Cat has created when she visited NYC. Her work utilizes the intervals in the natural overtone series, creating richly sonorous and naturally beautiful haronic relationships as the piece winds downward.

JACK Quartet is a 2018 Classical Commissioning grantee.  We will commission a new work by Catherine Lamb for string quartet.  We will post updates on our Member Profile throughout the grant.
