Jeff Quartets is a concert-length set of fifteen new works for four voices, presented as a journey over an evening. Unlike many of the works we sing, with divisi ranging from 8 to 24 voices, the quartets will be for 4 parts only; a simple tribute to a musical form Jeff loved. Our composers: Louis Andriessen, Benjamin C.S. Boyle, William Brooks, Robert Convery, Eriks Esenvalds, Paul Fowler, Ted Hearne, Bo Holten, Gabriel Jackson, David Lang, Lansing McLoskey, Santa Ratniece, David Shapiro, Kile Smith, and Lewis Spratlan.

Omnibus edition: the composers of Jeff Quartets have generously allowed for the sale of their quartets in a collection marking this extraordinary event; all proceeds will benefit The Jeffrey Dinsmore Memorial Fund @ The Crossing.
