Hailed by The New York Times as “our leading new-music foursome,” the JACK Quartet is synchronized in its mission to create an international community through transformative, mind-broadening experiences and close listening. Comprising violinists Christopher Otto and Austin Wulliman, violist John Pickford Richards, and cellist Jay Campbell, JACK was founded in 2005 and operates as a nonprofit organization dedicated to the performance, commissioning, and appreciation of 20th and 21st-century string quartet music. JACK has a prolific commissioning and recording catalog and has been nominated for three Grammy Awards. This season, the quartet is featured in the ongoing celebrations of John Zorn’s 70th birthday, a three-concert day at Wigmore Hall, a premiere by Natacha Diels in Philadelphia, an Australian tour, and the 5th edition of JACK Studio—an all-access initiative that funds collaborations with a selection of artists each year to develop new works for string quartet. JACK’s albums of music by John Luther Adams were nominated for Grammy Awards in both 2022 and 2023. Previous albums include music by Helmut Lachenmann, Catherine Lamb, Du Yun, Elliott Sharp, Zosha di Castri, and Iannis Xenakis. JACK Quartet is the Quartet in Residence at the Mannes School of Music. All four members are alumni of the Lucerne Festival Academy.
