With a lack of strings programs in the tri-county area, you will see the Griffon String Quartet fill the void where they can with children.
Used to performing in homes, churches, and even libraries, the Griffon String Quartet recently took to the corner of a classroom at Sunrise Elementary School in Sturgeon Bay. During the 45-minute assemblies, the Griffon String Quartet members not only performed for the students but allowed them to ask questions and even hold their instruments. Introducing children to string instruments to kids is nothing new for the Griffon String Quartet. They have partnered with Door County and Green Bay area school districts to provide opportunities to learn more classical and chamber music through workshops, concerts, and other music education outreach.
In the coming weeks, the Griffon String Quartet will take on a favorite author of children with a pair of shows on November 12th. The ensemble will perform the music behind the children’s book Because by Mo Willems. The author of the Pigeon Series, Willems wrote Because as a tribute to the late Charles Schulz. The Griffon String Quartet will perform Because at the Door County Library in Sturgeon Bay on November 12th at 11 a.m. and the main Brown County Library branch in Green Bay at 1:30 p.m.
