The Dr. James E. Clark Chamber Music Residency was established in 2014 by Dr. Clark, whose daughter Jamie (BM ’12) was an enthusiastic participant in the chamber music program at Eastman. The first residency in 2015 brought the Juilliard Quartet to Eastman for two days of private coachings as well as a public masterclass and performance in Kilbourn Hall. The next three years of the residency followed a similar format with guest artists the Brentano Quartet, the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio and the Jupiter Quartet. These residencies fulfilled Dr. Clark’s goal of providing Eastman student ensembles intense, up-close exposure to both the playing and teaching of world-renowned ensembles. This is an endowed program and any contributions made are in support of the continuation of this residency.
