The Newport String Project Season Opening Concert
2 pm Newport Art Museum (76 Bellevue Avenue)
The Newport Art Museum is pleased to host the launch of the Newport String Project's fourth season with a vibrant afternoon chamber music concert on October 9, at 2pm in the Historic N. A. Griswold House. Featuring string quartets by Haydn and Schubert alongside rare duos by contemporary Icelandic composer Runnársdóttir, the event will also offer an opportunity to learn more about the Newport String Project’s plans for its fourth year. Project directors and violinists, EmmaLee Holmes-Hicks and Ealaín McMullin will be joined by guest musicians Tanya Maggi and Heath Marlow.
In its first three years, the Newport String Project has become a firm favorite for concert goers in Rhode Island and beyond. With its commitment to performing chamber music masterworks alongside rarely heard works by underrepresented composers, the project seeks to create dynamic and accessible concert experiences for all.
