The Newport String Project is delighted to present the opening concert of its second season! We welcome back violist Jesse Holstein and cellist Heath Marlow as guest artists for a program of string quartets from youthful Haydn (op 1 no 1 “La Chasse”) and trailblazer-to-the-end Beethoven (op 130).
The concert will take place at Emmanuel Church on Saturday October 4th. Performance starts at 7.30pm – however, early birds will be richly rewarded!
At 6.30pm, we will have our very first Tune In! event - guest artist Jesse Holstein present a talk taking us on a auditory adventure through these quartets, highlighting the not-to-be-missed sonic landmarks and sharing a few anecdotes about the lives and times of the composers. Light refreshments will be served. This will be the first of our new Tune In! series, aimed at inviting our audiences to engage more deeply with the Newport String Project concerts. Details of each Tune In! event will be announced alongside the upcoming concert information.
All are welcome. Admission is by donation – all donations directly support our performing and educational programming. Community support is vital to sustaining the project. Donations are fully tax deductible.
Bring all your friends and help us celebrate the launch of our second season! We look forward to seeing you there!
