Assistant Professor of Flute Julietta Curenton, M.M., will perform with the JACK Quartet at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 25, as part of a Philadelphia Chamber Music Society program that includes the Philadelphia premiere of Iranian composer Aida Shirazi’s “Vestiges” and concludes with John Zorn’s “Nachträglichkeit,” a work for string quartet and flute that is full of surprises, from extremely quiet moments to unexpected, fast blows. This performance will be livestreamed and is available on a pay-what-you-wish basis.
Curenton’s solo pursuits include commissioning women and African-American composers to write new, innovative and accessible works for the flute, some of which have been featured on New York’s WQXR Young Artists Showcase and Philadelphia’s WRTI Performance Studio. Curenton’s highly anticipated debut album “Harambee: The Power of Sisterhood” was released in 2021.
Hailed by The New York Times as “our leading new-music foursome”, the JACK Quartet is one of the most acclaimed, renowned and respected groups performing today. JACK has maintained an unwavering commitment to its mission of performing and commissioning new works, giving voice to underheard composers and cultivating an ever-greater sense of openness toward contemporary classical music.
