The DaPonte String Quartet is kicking off its Fall Fundraising Campaign. The 2022-2023 season will be our first full concert season since Covid shut us down in March of 2020. We will start with a series in November and December featuring Trios by three great composers and continuing with concerts in February, April, May and on into the Summer months. In addition to the concerts, the DaPonte Quartet runs two workshops, one for Maine High School string players at Camp Wavus in Jefferson, and one for adult players in Freeport. They will also be teaching young players in an after-school musicianship training program, including quartet performance. The DSQ will also bring back the Quartet Institute this Summer for aspiring college-level quartets.
The quartet weathered an uncertain period this Spring because of their former foundation’s board, but they emerged with the newly formed DaPonte String Quartet Foundation and a fully energetic and supportive board. Your support and encouragement carried them through and your continued support will keep the music and teaching going. Thank you so much for your help.
