Jupiter Quartet to give free online concert

The Jupiter String Quartet will offer a free online concert on Friday, Nov. 13, at 7:30 p.m.
This quartet is a particularly intimate group, consisting of violinists Nelson Lee and Meg Freivogel, violist Liz Freivogel (Meg’s older sister), and cellist Daniel McDonough (Meg’s husband, Liz’s brother-in-law). Now enjoying their 17th year together, this tight-knit ensemble is firmly established as an important voice in the world of chamber music. Among their many honors are top prizes at the Banff International String Quartet Competition, Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, Young Concert Artists International auditions, the Cleveland Quartet Award, and the Avery Fisher Career Grant.
Middlebury enjoys a long and fruitful relationship with the Jupiters, who first visited campus in 2010. Though they have often treated us to core string quartet repertoire such as Beethoven and Bartók, they are also strongly committed to new music. For this concert, they will treat us to a program of Mendelssohn, George Walker, and Michi Wiancko.
To register for this concert visit middlebury.edu/college/arts/performing-arts-series, and watch on the Mahaney Arts Center Digital Stage at middlebury.edu/college/arts/digital-stages.
