About the Artists

Formed at Oberlin Conservatory, the Jasper Quartet launched their professional career in 2006. In 2008, the Jaspers swept through the competition circuit, winning the Grand Prize and the Audience Prize in the Plowman Chamber Music Competition, the Grand Prize at the Coleman Competition, First Prize at Chamber Music Yellow Springs, and the Silver Medal at the 2008 and 2009 Fischoff Chamber Music Competitions. They were also the first ensemble honored with Yale School of Music’s Horatio Parker Memorial Prize, an award established in 1945, and selected by the faculty for “best fulfilling… lofty musical ideals." In 2010, they joined the roster of Astral Artists after winning their national auditions.

The Quartet has received multiple Chamber Music America Residency Partnership grants and numerous Picasso Project grants from Public Citizens for Children and Youth to support its ongoing work with public schools. The Fischoff National Chamber Music Association recognized the Quartet's "outstanding and imaginative programming for children and youth in the United States" with their 2016 Educator Award. 

“Flawless in ensemble and intonation, expressively assured and beautifully balanced.”
