The DaPonte String Quartet is one of Maine's treasures. I attended the Feb. 11th concert at St. Andrew's Church in Newcastle, Maine. Their playing and musical expression is superb. Their pre-concert informational talk also greatly adds to the audience's pleasure in the music. My family makes a point to travel down to the coast to hear the DaPonte regularly because they are wonderful!

I began to attend concerts when the DaPonte String Quartet first came to Maine in 1995 on a rural Residency Grant from the NEA and Chamber Music America. For a musical neophyte, it was thrilling to have this opportunity to hear such exquisite music played so well. The Quartet has an extraordinarily full schedule of concerts, teaching, coaching, and playing in schools and retirement communities, all of which have enriched many lives immeasurably.

The Quartet's extensive repertoire has opened up a whole new world of music for me. Also, soon after their arrival in mid-coast Maine, I began having violin lessons with one of the members and also began playing in a community string orchestra which he conducts.

Finding ways to help the DaPonte String Quartet become more financially secure will help ensure their being able to bring some of the world's greatest music to an ever broadening audience.

The DaPonte String Quartet has been an excellent institution in our community.
They play concerts at a highly professional level (I would be glad to buy CD's
when available---which, by the way, is certainly not the case for other local musical groups.)
Moreover, their talks before
concerts and when introducing pieces is a great help in understanding
new pieces as well as giving new insight on the more traditional repetoire.
They have also done a marvelous job in bring music appreciation to many public schools. More of this
needs to be done.

The DaPonte String Quartet has been bringing beautiful music in the highest quality performannce to the people ofthe many small towns in Midcoast Maine, who might otherwise never hear this great music . They immeasurably enrich the lives of their concert audiences, and young and old people in schools and institutions. Doris Balant
