The Middlebury Performing Arts Series welcomes
the Jupiter and Jasper String Quartets to our 103rd season.

It’s a family affair when our friends the Jupiter Quartet joins the Jasper String Quartet—between these two acclaimed ensembles, there are three siblings, two married couples, and several former college roommates! Their collaborative concert concludes our “year of the cello” celebration with performances of Schubert’s cello quintet, Reena Esmail’s Ragamala, and the beautiful Mendelssohn Octet. Bask in the full sound of a string octet in the impeccable acoustics of Robison Hall.
