Winner of the prestigious CMA Cleveland Quartet Award, Philadelphia’s Jasper String Quartet will perform at George School on Friday, March 29, 2019 at 10:25 a.m. in Walton Center. The performance is made possible through The John Charles O’Neill Musical Performance Fund.
The fund was established in loving memory of Chuck O’Neill ’94, by his parents Tom and Kate O’Neill, his brothers Matt O’Neill ’90 and Tim O’Neill ’99, and family friends. The endowment brings visiting musical performing artists to George School to enrich the lives of students, faculty, staff, and members of the community through assemblies and master classes.
Jasper String Quartet has performed hundreds of outreach programs in schools and enjoys educational work of all types. In 2018, the Quartet received their second Picasso Project Grant from Public Citizens for Children and Youth. Fischoff National Chamber Music Association also recognized the Quartet’s “outstanding and imaginative programming for children and youth in the United States” with their 2016 Educator Award.
The Quartet is comprised of J Freivogel and Karen Kim on violin, Sam Quintal on the viola, and Rachel Henderson Freivogel on the cello.
