Music In Homes: PUBLIQuartet

Dubbed “independent-minded” by The New Yorker and “Leaders of the New School” by Symphony Magazine, PUBLIQuartet’s creativity lends a fresh perspective to the classical music scene. Known for their technical mastery and joyful performances, PUBLIQuartet (PQ) incorporates classical and contemporary works, original compositions, and improvisations. Often collaborating with young composers, they are dedicated to presenting new works for string quartet.

Detroit-born violinist Jannina Barefield Norpoth had an early classical start, soloing twice with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in her teens. She is now based in New York, working with PQ musicians: violinist Curtis Stewart, violist Nick Revel and cellist Amanda Gookin. An award-winning ensemble, PQ was selected as the Concert Artists Guild’s 2013 New Music/New Places Ensemble. In 2015, PQ received the Chamber Music America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming and sold-out their debut recital at Carnegie Hall. PQ has performed in diverse venues and programs, from Lincoln Center and SubCulture to the Detroit Institute of Arts, Dizzy’s Club, Newport Jazz Festival, Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival, Nantucket Musical Arts Society, and the Music of Now festival at Symphony Space. They have collaborated with members of the International Contemporary Ensemble, JACK Quartet, Nadia Sirota, and amazing jazz artists, Billy Childs, Bob Stewart, and Don Byron.
