If you love classical music and have considered taking your kids to a real classical music concert, then realized that it would be too long and boring for them, and too expensive and frustrating for you -- here is your chance. The award-winning Jasper String Quartet will give a real concert tailored for kids on Saturday, February 5, at 2 p.m., in Greenwich Library's Cole Auditorium. In their free, 45-minute performance, they will play excerpts of kid-friendly pieces by Beethoven and Ravel.
The Jasper String Quartet has been hailed as "sonically delightful and expressively compelling" by The Strad and "polished, engaged, and in tune with one another" by Classical Voice of North Carolina. This unity comes from a quartet belief in the timeless and lifelong pursuit of music's depth and meaning. They share a commitment to exploring each work to its fullest and to discovering new musical connections through each performance.
The Ashforth Children's Concert Series is designed to expose children to classical and jazz music performance. The concert is free and open to the public through the support of Georgie and Henry A. Ashforth.
The show is appropriate for elementary school children. Pick up free, unassigned seating tickets (limit six per person) at the Cole Auditorium at noon, and return when doors open at 1:50 pm. For more information, please contact the Public Relations Office at (203) 622-7965.
