Jubilee String Quartet 1920x830


Jubilee String Quartet

Hosted by the LSE Arts Lunchtime Concert Series

Shaw Library, 6th Floor, Old Building

Originally formed in 2006, the Jubilee String Quartet is made up of four musicians from across the globe. Each member of the quartet brings their unique sense of cultural identity to the group, which thrives on musical inspiration from four different homelands: the Czech Republic, Canada, Spain, and England.

The Quartet has received glowing reviews from The Sunday Times, Classical Source, The Daily Telegraph, Gramophone, Strad Magazine and others for its debut recording of three Haydn quartets released in 2019 on Rubicon Classics. Winners of the First Prize at the Gianni Bergamo Classic Music Award in Lugano, Switzerland in September 2019, the Quartet maintains an active performance schedule across the UK and Europe, and enjoys collaborating with ProQuartet in Paris and ChamberStudio in London. Alongside performing in venues such as the Wigmore Hall, Conway Hall, and the Purcell Room, the quartet has also been featured on BBC Radio 3 “In Tune”. 2020 saw the inauguration of the Jubilee String Quartet Academy as an online, live-streamed event connecting musicians and music lovers across the globe. The group is passionate about sharing the joy of quartet playing with young musicians, professionals, and amateurs alike, and its members have enjoyed a variety of outreach projects as part of the Live Music Now! scheme as well as working with young chamber music students at the Purcell School.

Just economics and politics? Think again. While LSE does not teach arts or music, there is a vibrant cultural side to the School - from weekly free music concerts in the Shaw Library, and an LSE orchestra and choir with their own professional conductors, various film, art and photographic student societies, the annual LSE photo prize competition, the LSE Literary Festival and artist-in-residence projects.
