The Griffon String Quartet of Midsummer’s Music recently received a “Project: Music Heals Us” grant to help bring more live performances to marginalized residents of Door County. Midsummer’s Music has provided mini-concerts for people who cannot come to performances due to healthcare needs, economic needs, or physical location, like the Scandia Village in Sister Bay. The outreach program has provided concerts for hundreds of disabled or aging people and their caregivers. The Griffon Quartet is planning to add additional partners in 2022 to expand the presentations in the Door County community. Quartet concerts and solo performances have been conducted virtually with a two-way video that allows for the musicians and viewers to interact.
The Griffon Quartet was founded in 2018 to collaborate with Midsummer’s Music to enrich the lives of children and adults throughout the area.
“Project: Music Heals Us” is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide encouragement, education, and healing through bringing high-quality live music performances and interactive programming to disadvantaged people.
