Rockport Music is the presenter of the Rockport Music Chamber Festival, which is widely recognized as one of the most distinguished chamber music festivals in the United States. Under the artistic leadership of renowned pianist David Deveau, concerts feature established performers of international stature (Peter Serkin, Dubrovka Tomsic, Midori), emerging young talent (Jupiter String Quartet, Gilles Vonsattel, Biava String Quartet), and commissions by many of today’s leading composers. In addition to the Festival, Rockport Music offers year-round presentations of classical, jazz, folk, and other genres of music.

Building on its artistic successes, Rockport Music is currently experiencing a period of transformation and institutional growth. In June 2010, Rockport Music will open the doors of its permanent home, the Shalin Liu Performance Center, a state-of-the-art oceanfront concert hall now under construction on Main Street in the historic village of Rockport, Massachusetts. The new performance center will allow Rockport Music to extend its signature chamber music festival to six weeks, offer complementary events such as lectures and free programs, expand its non-classical musical offerings, and focus on educational outreach programs for children and adults.



Formed in 2001, the Jupiter String Quartet features Nelson Lee and Megan Freivogel (violins), Liz Freivogel (viola), and Daniel McDonough (cello). Residents of Boston, members met while studying together at the New England Conservatory of Music, where they participated in the Professional String Quartet Training Program. The Quartet has received several chamber music honors, including first prize in the Banff International String Quartet Competition, grand prize in the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, and most recently, an Avery Fisher Career Grant. The quartet concertizes across the United States, Canada, Europe, and South America.
