Review for FRIENDS OF THE DAPONTE STRING QUARTET, Demariscotta, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

Review for FRIENDS OF THE DAPONTE STRING QUARTET, Demariscotta, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

Role:  Board Member & When I was chair of a summer performing arts program on an island off the coast of Maine I invited the Quartet to play. It was a delightful and well-received concert in an under-served area.
