The genius of Mason Jennings' music is its honesty: Only the very young or very courageous can afford to be so frank about themselves and the world. Still, after eleven albums, Jennings continues to be true to his experience, crafting songs that are equally striking and simple. No wonder this indie-troubadour sold 30,000 copies of his first two albums without a big label or P.R. push -- the music sold itself. Now, years later and with a loyal cult following, Jennings is touring the country in support of his latest effort, the critically lauded Always Been. While building on Jennings' rugged, acoustic early work, the album explores sunnier melodies and inspiring love songs. Watch this earnest and soulful artist perform live at the South Orange Performing Arts Center. Learn More

The Tristan Paino Quarter Is:
Peter Dugan, piano
Christel Lee, violin
A.J. Nilles, viola
Jia Kim, cello
Three of the original members of the Tristan Piano Quartet (Mr. Dugan, Mr. Nilles and Ms. Kim) first met in 2003 at the Perlman Music Program’s Summer Music School, where they began to grow their love and passion for chamber music and have been playing with Ms. Lee since 2007. Since then, they have been working as a new emerging ensemble to bring variety and excellence in chamber music performance and study. They are also committed to education, connecting with diverse audiences and sharing music with those who are less fortunate.
The Tristan Piano Quartet has also worked with Roger Tapping, the former violist of the Takacs Quartet. The members have collaborated and worked with the members of the Juilliard String Quartet and the Cavani String Quartet, along with such renowned artists as Itzhak Perlman, Paul Katz, Donald Weilersten and Robert Mann. They've performed at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Orchestra Hall in Chicago, The Walt Disney Concert Hall and Alice Tully Hall. The Tristan Piano Quartet members have attended festivals such as Banff summer music program, Kneisel Hall, Verbier Music Festival and the Perlman Music Program’s Chamber Music Workshop.
Currently attending the Juilliard School under scholarship, Ms. Lee studies with Kyung-Wha Chung, Mr.Nilles with Heidi Castelman and Misha Amory, Ms.Kim with Joel Krosnick and Mr.Dugan with Matti Raekallio.
