Schools to perform with Switchgrass String Quartet

GARDEN CITY — The middle school and high school orchestra programs will present a collaborative concert with the Switchgrass String Quartet at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 29 in Clifford Hope Auditorium, 1412 N. Main Street. 

The quartet will be working with the programs’ students to enhance the techniques and performance during a clinic that day. 

The Switchgrass String Quartet plays everything from Mozart to Jazz to Sufi chants.

An innovative group, the members are all fine classical musicians, but are also adept at improvising and enjoy exploring a wide variety of genres of music.

They are all seasoned music educators and delight in working with others. The Switchgrass String Quartet has been together for ten years and has played at a variety of events. 

Reserved seating will be available for this concert for a donation.
