Austin Wulliman joins the Jack Quartet

July 14, 2016
The JACK Quartet has a new violinist: Austin Wulliman, former member of Chicago’s Ensemble Dal Niente and founding member of the Spektral Quartet. The JACK Quartet was founded in 2007, and according to the New York Times has become “an important ensemble with a reputation for adventurousness and for championing new work.” The quartet has performed music by such composers as John Luther Adams, Caroline Shaw, Steve Reich, Matthias Pintscher and John Zorn. Wulliman, who has played a Joseph Curtin violin since 2013, says he is eager to throw himself “headlong at JACK’s upcoming projects, which will bring a sharp focus to my mission of challenging musical constraints.” Also new to the quartet is cellist Jay Cambell.
