West Jazz String Quartet
In 2011, four friends met at the University of Michigan who would have never thought to share a stage together as one single intimate ensemble. One-violin-and-three-cello quartets simply don't exist. However, they were all enthusiastic and passionate musicians who could not pass up the chance to share with everyone just what strings could do. Encouraged by professors at the music school and by fellow colleagues, West Jazz String Quartet (WJSQ) was born, with a goal to fuse jazz and classical music into one seamless experience through an unusual instrumentation and a tangible love for music through strings.
The primary members consist of Victor Huls, Eric Haugen, and Danny Poceta, but other cellists too were welcomed and equally trusted to carry on the torch. The group has been on hiatus for the time being, but we are always happy to play for an interested audience.
