Spring Sessions: Inspiration

“Inspiration” features the Jupiter String Quartet whose founding cellist Daniel McDonough claims that the Austin Chamber Music Center gave him the “chamber music bug.” No vaccine necessary. They pair Mendelssohn’s exuberant Op. 12 Quartet (composed when he was just 19 years old) with Michi Waincko’s internally epic “To Unpathed Waters, Undreamed Shores.”

The Jupiter String 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). Now enjoying their 19th year together, this tight-knit ensemble is firmly established as an important voice in the world of chamber music.

The quartet has performed in some of the world’s finest halls, including New York City’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, London’s Wigmore Hall, Boston’s Jordan Hall, and Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center. Their major music festival appearances include the Aspen Music Festival and School, Bowdoin International Music Festival, Rockport Music Festival, and many others. In addition to their performing career, they have been artists-in-residence at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana since 2012.

To make these concerts accessible to all, we are offering tickets on a sliding scale from $0 to $40. For more information, visit the Austin Chamber Music Center’s Sessions page.
