The Ciompi Quartet Portfolio Project began in the summer of 2020 as a way for the Quartet to engage with composers in Duke Music’s graduate program during the Covid pandemic, when live performances were curtailed and composers and performers needed creative outlets for their music. Portfolio Project 2020 was presented by Duke Music’s Best of Biddle virtual series last March, with the video receiving hundreds of views since its premiere.

The success of the initial project inspired the Ciompi Quartet to continue the Portfolio Project in the summer of 2021, commissioning works from Duke graduate composers Dayton Kinney, Huijuan Ling and Brooks Frederickson.

The Ciompi Quartet will present Portfolio Project 2021 as a live concert on Tuesday, February 8, 2022 at 6pm in the Ruby Lounge of the Rubenstein Arts Center at Duke. The concert will also feature Professor John Supko’s Soleil Noir, commissioned by the Ciompi Quartet and premiered by the group in April 2021. Admission is free.
