We have experienced first-hand the profound effect that a committed performance can inspire through our participation in the Woodruff Arts Center’s Young Audience program, which brought us into contact with thousands of students spanning the greater Atlanta school system. We have also made community events a central aspect of our work in Atlanta as well as during residencies in Augusta, Jacksonville and Juneau. These residencies have combined formal concerts with educational outreach, performances in non-traditional venues and masterclasses for area students.
The below descriptions are examples; all presentations can be tailored to suit any age or venue.
We believe that live string quartet performance can connect with audiences in impactful and meaningful ways, and are always thrilled to take our playing to schools, hospitals, retirement homes and other community venues.
