J-Way String Quartet --an innovative quartet of Jamaica Plain residents Catherine Bent (cello), Alishah Raven (5-string violin), Rika Ikeda (violin), and Tomoko Iwamoto (violin) will offer a program featuring original pieces by J-Way and other modern classical, jazz and Brazilian selections.
J-Way was founded by associate faculty and graduates of Berklee College of Music and New England Conservatory with a common interest in jazz and creative music. Four accomplished string players with training in the European tradition and the music of various parts of world bring their original compositions and arrangements, music from Japan and Brazil and other music with African roots. All of its members being emigrants from other continents, J-Way appreciates the paths that music travels, the deep vibrations of the old world within the new, and the special weight of time and place when music is performed far from home.
