The Portland String Quartet
Saturday, June 24 – 7:00 pm
The Portland String Quartet honors Maine composer, distinguished Professor of Music at Bowdoin College and special guest of this festival in 2007 – Elliott Schwartz (1936 – 2016). The Shaker symbol, “The Tree of Life,” will find expression in the Shaker hymn as well as in the organic continuity of music that represents classical, romantic and avant garde styles. Works by Haydn and Dvorak will add context to Schwartz’ last work, String Quartet No.3: Portrait for Deedee, a final tribute to his beloved wife.
