The Southbury Library will be celebrating the changing of the seasons with a performance of Antonio Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons by The Haven String Quartet on Wednesday, October 18th at 7pm in the Brinker Fireplace room.
Featured in the New York Times and NPR, and sought after for both their command on the concert stage and their mastery as teachers, Haven String Quartet has been hailed as “the nation’s premiere community-based string quartet.” Its four members represent the world’s top conservatories and bring outstanding chamber music performances to New Haven neighborhoods and throughout the region with a full season of concerts, recitals, educational workshops, and performances for diverse audiences in public spaces.
Founded in 2007, the Quartet serves as the permanent quartet-in-residence and teaching faculty for Music Haven. They spearhead the organization’s tuition-free strings program for youth, which has been recognized as a top 50 after-school arts program in the country by the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities for six years. Each member of HSQ teaches a full studio of 15-20 Music Haven students in private lessons, group classes, studio classes, chamber groups, and an advanced chamber orchestra. “Few classical ensembles are more attuned to the specific environment and the circumstances of each concert. Few are more accessible, or more responsive to the needs of the communities they serve.” – The Daily Nutmeg
