By the end of next month, Midsummer’s Music Executive Director Allyson Fleck is confident that you will see that folk music and chamber music can work together in harmony. The excitement is building for the album release of “Beneath the Waves,” a collection of seven songs featuring Eric Lewis and the Griffon String Quartet. Performing outside of their element is nothing new for the Griffon String Quartet, which performs in unique settings in Door and Brown counties bringing their repertoire to people and places you never thought you would find chamber music in before. Throw in a talented musician like Lewis, and Fleck says you can see how all musicians can work together to perform the perfect piece of music.
The album will be officially released at a special event at the Northern Sky Theater’s Gould Theater on September 9th at 7 p.m. Fleck says the album will have a physical release in addition to downloads available to purchase on their website if you can not make it.
