The Griffon String Quartet from Midsummer's Music is addressing a need for classical instruction for Door County youth. The program does private lessons and provides training as part of a partnership with the Northern Door County YMCA in Fish Creek. The group also puts on concerts throughout the school year reaching kids in all grades K through 12. Executive Director Allyson Fleck says most schools in the area have cut strings from their music programs.
String instruments consist of the violin, viola, cello, and bass. The latter is not part of the quartet's ensemble.
