I've been going to the DSQ for many years and have never failed to be impressed by its energy, passion, and musicianship. Remarks made by individual members of the Quartet are always interesting, scholarly, and fun. It is first-rate chamber music. We are very fortunate to have them in Maine.

I have been going to their concerts for a long time and have always been amazed at the energy and quality of their playing. Their intelligent comments about both composers and music are teaching moments that help me understand the music better. The Quartet enriches the cultural life of Maine immensely through concerts and school outreach.

There is a subtlty to the interpretations of the DaPonte String Quartet that teaches the audience, even a well educated audience member, about the piece of music, which only come from a musical group that is made up of insightful musicians. This group does that.

I have been listening to the DaPonte String Quartet for 20 years--which is as long as it has been a Quartet--and I continue t think it is wonderful! My husband and I moved to Maine from the New York area, where we were used to hearing all kinds of extraordinary music, and we were amazed to find world class music in what seemed like a rural setting. We were also delighted by the intimacy of the settings; we loved the fact that the members of the Quartet became our friends. And we were impressed by the Quartet's generous outreach to the community--their free concerts in schools, for example, and in retirement home, and their concerts to benefit the restoration of historic buildings. Over the years, their programs have grown in sophistication, and their playing in excellence. I find it hard to believe, but they just keep getting better and better!

The Great!

Review from Guidestar

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 Great!

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.
