Newport String Quartet to Host Spring Concert at Newport Art Museum



On April 16 at 2 p.m., the Newport String Project will once again partner with the Newport Art Museum for a spirited celebration of spring through chamber music – just in time for the Daffodil Days in Newport!

The Newport String Quartet will perform the rarely heard Vistas al Mar by Catalan composer Eduard Toldrà Soler, inspired by the maritime poetry of Joan Maragall.

The performance will also feature the contemporary classic Entr’acte by Caroline Shaw.

The quartet will also be joined by guest artist Jesse Holstein (viola) for a performance of Brahms’ monumental String Quintet No. 2 in G major.

General admission tickets are $20 and supporter tickets are $35. Proceeds support the Newport String Project’s free after-school youth community and mentoring programs.
