Griffon String Quartet expands Alzheimer's outreach to Green Bay

A successful music program that aids Alzheimer's patients and their caregivers in Door County is expanding to Green Bay.  The Griffon String Quartet, which is part of Midsummer's Music in Sister Bay, received a grant from the Irene Daniell Kress Fund of the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation.  That will allow the quartet to perform additional Memory Cafes through the B-Double Sharp program. It brings together those facing memory loss and those who support them with others facing the same struggles.  Previous Memory Cafe's have been held at the Door County Medical Center and Scandia Village in Door County and the Green Bay Botanical Garden.  Russ Warren, Marketing and Media Director with Midsummer's Music, was told of a previous Memory Cafe performance that had therapeutic results for one patient.


In addition to the Memory Cafes, the Griffon String Quartet have done musical outreachs to schools throughout Door and Brown counties.
