Midsummer's Music ensemble gets its name

A little Door County history was involved in naming Midsummer’s Music’s professional resident quartet. The newly named Griffon String Quartet made its debut on October 13th as a part of an effort to bring the musicians into the classrooms of schools in Door and Brown counties. Midsummer’s Music Executive Director Allyson Fleck says the quartet takes its name from the 17th-century sailing vessel known as Le Griffon, which has a mysterious history on the Great Lakes.

The Griffon Quartet will perform for one of the first times under its new name on January 16th at the Door County Maritime Museum beginning at 4 p.m.
