Mark your calendars, friends...
October 6th marks the first concert of the Newport String Project Season!
Newport String Project violinists EmmaLee Holmes-Hicks and Ealaín McMullin will be joined by two terrific guest artists.
Jesse Holstein, senior resident musician at Community MusicWorks, will briefly be surfacing from his sabbatical from CMW to play viola on this concert. (You can read more about Jesse's sabbatical project here.)
Director of the Sistema Fellows Program at New England Conservatory (and long-time mentor to the Newport String Project), Heath Marlow will be playing cello.
The quartet will be performing Haydn's Quartet in D Major op 20 no 4 and Beethoven's truly epic Quartet in E flat major op 127. The quartet will be fresh from a rehearsal retreat at Avaloch Farm - a spectacular new retreat center for chamber ensembles in New Hampshire. More on that soon!
The concert will take place at 4pm on October 6th at Trinity Episcopal Church. Admission is free and all are welcome!
