The quartet in April visited local schools, part of the Education Program of Music Feeds Us, introduced classical music and string instruments, and presented the season's repertoire to kids grades K-12.
Through children’s concerts, we are not only educating the next generation on the joys of chamber music and the wonderful repertoire it brings, but also instilling in them the responsibility to fight for the often forgotten humanitarian issues, specifically hunger, which is still a major problem in the United States.
The goal today is to inspire audiences, through music, to give to their local food bank. By guiding the generation of tomorrow through these issues, we can hopefully make a lasting difference in our community.
