EAC Concert Series presents: DaPonte String Quartet

July 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Eastport Arts Center (EAC), 36 Washington Street
Eastport, ME 04631 United States
+ Google Map

The Eastport Arts Center’s popular summer concert series continues at 7 pm, Monday, July 23, with the DaPonte String Quartet. For their summer tour, the quartet has cooked up a “Summer Goulash” program with a dash of Hungarian spice. Haydn’s String Quartet in C Major Op.20 No.2, one of the works that led him to be dubbed the “father of the string quartet,” opens the program, while Brahms’ String Quartet No. 3 in B flat Major Op. 67— a bright and perfectly crafted work, and his last string quartet—closes it. Sandwiched between the two classical works is Hungarian composer Bela Bartók’s String Quartet No. 3 Sz. 85, a piece that borrows heavily from the local folk music. A reception sponsored by Shear Creations will follow the concert.

Laura Engstrom, fourteen years old, sits up in bed and throws the covers off. "Others, too, are awakened by a chorus of night voices. Haverstraw, a thirty-nine-year-old failed writer living in his mother's attic; an old woman who lives alone; three teenage boys looking for trouble; a gang of girls who roam the night and break into houses; a lonely young man looking for love; a beautiful mannequin whose cold fiberglass arms begin to quicken; a group of restless children; and assorted dolls, toys, and animals long forgotten in an attic. "This is the night of revelation. This is the night the dolls wake. This is the night of the dreamer in the attic. This is the night of the piper of the world," according to the book cover.
