The Newport Art Museum will host the Newport String Project’s Season Opening concert in the galleries of the historic N.A. Griswold House on October 9, at 2pm.  This event joins the ranks of the many events and educational programs the Museum currently offers in its galleries at 76 Bellevue Avenue, Newport.

Celebrating the launch of its fourth season, the Newport String Project is delighted to present a vibrant afternoon of chamber music at the Newport Art Museum on October 9th. Featuring string quartets by Haydn and Schubert alongside rare duos by contemporary Icelandic composer Runnársdóttir, the event will also offer an opportunity to learn more about the Newport String Project’s plans for its fourth year. Project directors and violinists, EmmaLee Holmes-Hicks and Ealaín McMullin will be joined by guest musicians Tanya Maggi and Heath Marlow.

In its first three years, the Newport String Project has become a firm favorite for concert goers in Rhode Island and beyond. With its commitment to performing chamber music masterworks alongside rarely heard works by underrepresented composers, the project seeks to create dynamic and accessible concert experiences for all.
