Visiting Artists

JACK Quartet
JACK Quartet's two year residency is a joint venture between Duke Performances and the Department of Music and includes concerts, master classes, and reading, workshopping, and recording new music by graduate students in Duke's composition program. The Boston Globe hails JACK Quartet as "the superheroes of the new music world."
Deviant Septet
Formed in 2010, Deviant Septet has been hailed as an “exciting” (New York Times), “stylish new ensemble” (New York Magazine). The goal of Deviant Septet is to fulfill the vision Igor Stravinsky had for his "L’histoire du Soldat" ensemble by bringing together an unusual combination of instruments— the soprano and bass voice of every instrument family: violin and bass, clarinet and bassoon, trumpet and trombone, and percussion.
