SOUTH PARIS —

While many classical musicians struggling with the realities of the contemporary musical marketplace find themselves performing exclusively new compositions, the Quartet’s repertoire spans the entire history of music, from 17th-century works on original instruments to cutting-edge contemporary quartets. The DSQ is also known for their inventive interpretations of the works they play.

Fresh conception requires original thought, and the DSQ’s is based on solid research, extensive scholarship and meticulous preparation. Their concerts are dynamic and their stage manner is warm and conversational. The Quartet members regularly share musical insights with their audiences before playing and these “spoken program notes” enable the listener to enter into a deeper connection with the music.

The DaPonte String Quartet is now celebrating its 22nd anniversary, and its members are still proud to call Maine home.

Tickets are $15 per person and are available at the door or at www.daponte.org. Students are admitted free. Due to the nature of the music, it would be best if children are of an age to sit quietly for an extended time period.

The church is at 500 Paris Hill Road. For more information, call 207-754-7970 or email [email protected]
