Midsummer's Music and the Griffon String Quartet have become an active part of Door County playing to audiences young and old. Executive Director Allyson Fleck says it is amazing how just four musicians can quickly become the center of attention in large gathering spaces. Fleck says children are often the catalyst for a gathering crowd. Fleck doesn't believe the younger audience requires a curated playlist, but tweaking the presentation helps.
The quartet gave presentations to schools earlier this month highlighting the ideas of teamwork. There is no conductor for the four person group so they must each monitor their rhythm so that they are producing a cohesive musical piece.
