The DaPonte String Quartet is a marvelous combination of professional musicians who love to share classical music with audiences from the general public to school children. They play in our schools to interest our children in music and instruments. They play in retirement centers for those who cannot travel to other venues. They teach private students of all ages and conduct local orchestras. Their repertoire is vast and every series of concerts up and down the midcoast is a different program each time. We are very lucky to have such a professional, community-minded ensemble living in our area and performing year-round. These are four world class musicians who come together to play with unparalleled strength and knowledge of the classics and produce quality, superb, performances.

This is a professional string quartet in the Midcoast Maine area that performs concerts for the public but, as well, goes into schools and plays for the children and has Q&A with them to interest them in music and instruments. They also play free concerts at nursing homes and retirement centers for those who cannot attend regular concerts. These are four professional musicians who have moved to Maine to provide our area with possibly the only live classical ensemble year-round up and down the Maine coast.
They also teach private lessons to our children and conduct community orchestras.
They also have a half-hour free discussion before the concert explaining the composer's (this year Beethoven) thinking and musicality. It would be a great loss to our community not to have these cultural events and these great musicians and the time they give back to our community and local schools.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the number of people who come to and enjoy the concerts. I have also recently decided to take violin lessons myself with a member of the quartet.

No changes. Just want the quartet to be able to continue to share their music with our community.
