DUET Jazz Club
The versatile and charismatic Harlem Quartet plays everything with panache! Living a philosophy that great music is not exclusive to any one genre, the quartet captivates new listeners with expert performances of a spectrum of repertoire, including classical, Latin, and jazz.
One of the defining characteristics of chamber music is its intimacy. Our Friday Gallery concerts give patrons that experience with an up-close-and-personal performance and an opportunity to mingle with our incredible artists. DUET

Harlem Quartet advances diversity in classical music while engaging new audiences with varied repertoire that includes works by minority composers. Their mission to share their passion with a wider audience has taken them around the world; from a 2009 performance at The White House for President Obama and First Lady, Michelle Obama, to a highly successful tour of South Africa in 2012, and numerous venues in between. The musically versatile ensemble has performed with such distinguished artists as Itzhak Perlman, Ida Kavafian, Carter Brey, Fred Sherry, Misha Dichter, Jeremy Denk, and Paquito D’Rivera. The quartet also collaborated with jazz masters Chick Corea and Gary Burton on the album Hot House, a 2013 multi-Grammy Award winning release.
