The Jack Quartet has come apart, it was announced today.
After 11 years together, founding violinist Ari Streisfeld had landed an assistant professorship in South Carolina and cellist Kevin McFarland has settled in Denver and wants to compose more.
The pair will be replaced by violinist Austin Wulliman and cellist Jay Campbell.
But it won’t be the same jack-in-a-box string quartet.
UPDATE: And there’s a knock-on effect. Austin is leaving the Spektral Quartet. They’re hiring.
