I work as a volunteer for the DSQ because I want to keep the music alive and flowing. These quartet members are the highest quality musicians and they live in Midcoast Maine and perform here (and around the country) all year long. It is a magical experience to attend one of their concerts. Their knowledge and interpretation of the music is exquisite as are their performances. They are also community-minded and play for school children to encourage them to listen to and possibly play classical music themselves. They have workshops for high school students where they coach them in quartet groups. The all teach students of any age and one of the members conducts two local orchestras who give free performances twice a year and conducts a Portland youth orchestra. I wouldn't miss a chance to hear DSQ perform.

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.

I have loved each of the DaPonte String Quartet concerts at the Methodist Church in Brunswick on Sunday afternoons.
