About the JACK Quartet

Hailed by The New York Times as the nation’s most important quartet, the JACK Quartet is one of the most respected groups performing today. JACK is committed to performing and commissioning new works, giving voice to underheard composers, and cultivating an ever-greater sense of openness toward contemporary classical music. Over the past season, they have been selected as Musical Americas 2018 Ensemble of the Year and named to WQXRs 19 for 19 Artists to Watch. JACK is composed of violinists Christopher Otto, Austin Wulliman, and John Pickford Richards, and cellist Jay Campbell.
