Community Spotlight: Griffon String Quartet

The Griffon String Quartet is making sure you get to experience the magic of string instruments regardless of your background. The Midsummer’s Music ensemble wrapped up a busy weekend of musical performances on Sunday with their performance at the Kress Pavilion in Egg Harbor. Their attention will now go back to the kids that members of the Griffon String Quartet spend a lot of time with, sharing their skills through lessons and outreach events. Last month, the ensemble performed concerts at branches of the Door County Library and Brown County Library to go hand-in-hand with Mo Willems’ book “Because.” As is the case for many of their outreach events, the musicians allowed the children to hold and even play the instruments, something that does not occur for many in an area that lacks a lot of orchestra programs. Violinist Roy Meyer said during his caroling stop at NEW Radio on Thursday that its interaction with area youth is among his favorite parts of the Griffon String Quartet.

The ensemble will pair up with the Suzuki Strings of Madison in the New Year to present the inaugural Griffon Winter Retreat. During the day on January 6th, Meyer and the Suzuki Strings will present a concert at Gibraltar Elementary before holding a workshop for the school’s 3rd-6th grade students. The retreat continues at Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church in Ellison Bay with a pair of events on the evening of January 6th and during the day on January 7th.
