Jacques Quartet (Allen Zhang and Claire Li, violins; Karina Ng, viola; Jean-Luc Rabideau, cello) began the class, performing the Allegro moderato from Dvořák's String Quartet No. 13 in G Major, Op. 106.

Unprecedented Quartet (Charlie Todd and Megan Rabe, violins; Steven Oh, viola; Holly Kim, cello; pictured at right) followed with the Allegro vivo appassionato from Smetana's String Quartet No. 1 ("From My Life”).

The final group, Lamentation Trio (Jaewon Jung, violin; Lauren Simmons, cello; Crystal Chiu, piano), returned to Dvořák with the Allegro ma non troppo from his Piano Trio No. 3 in F Minor, Op. 65.

Other students and faculty participated as online observers. The masterclass was presented by Duke Performances and Duke Music.
