Called “a joy to listen to” and “deeply moving” in a concert review by The Journal of Music (click here to read the full review online), the Apple Hill String Quartet is back from their tour of Ireland and Northern Ireland! Along with performances at the Fidelio Trio Winter Chamber Music Festival in Dublin, the quartet gave a master class for students of the Donegal Music Education Partnership at the Regional Culture Centre in Letterkenny, performed at secondary and primary schools throughout the Donegal countryside, many of them Irish speaking schools, worked with string students at Magee College, University of Ulster in Derry, Northern Ireland, and performed in a collaboration concert with the University of Ulster Choir and Apple Hill alumnus pianist, Evan McGarrigle, in Ballyshannon. Special thanks to the Fidelio Trio Winter Chamber Music Festival, Martin and Dot Meehan, Evan McGarrigle, Michael McMullin, the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, and all others who made this trip possible. We are so thankful!
This engagement is supported by Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation through USArtists International, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
