Season Finale Concert at the Great Friends Meeting House, June 5th

In honor of the final concert of our THIRD season (!), here are just three reasons you won't want to miss our Season Finale...

  • Great chamber music, live and up-close - With string quartets by Purcell, Tchaikovsky and Piazzolla the afternoon promises to be filled with drama, flair and fireworks. Guest musicians Jesse Holstein (viola) and Chelsea Bernstein (cello) return to the Newport String Project for a vivid program of chamber works. Pull up a pew for a quartet-side view of the action...
  • A setting like no other - we are thrilled to be partnering with the Newport Historical Society again this year and will present our season finale concert in the heart of Newport at the Great Friends Meeting House. Weather permitting the doors will be open, allowing music to spill out onto the lawn in front.
  • A community celebration - More than concerts, every Newport String Project event is an opportunity to get together with neighbors, friends, family. Be sure to stay after the concert to enjoy the reception. Mingle and chat with the musicians and fellow audience members about your listening experience - from the bits you loved to the bits that you still have questions about : ) Our season finale will be a chance for us to thank YOU who have supported our work through your presence and donations throughout our first three season. It's also a great chance to bring along that friend who has never been to one of our concerts...

And finally, one bonus reason you won't want to miss our Season Finale concert? The afternoon will open with a special performance by a plucky group of Newport String Project students.
