THE BORROMEO STRING QUARTET!
The visionary Borromeo String Quartet presented the works for Haydn, Ravel and Bartok at the Free Young Persons’ Concert on April 9th. The special treat of the afternoon was the excerpt they played from Russell Platt’s String Quartet No. 1. This was a piece written for the Borromeo String
Quartet who will be premiering the work this summer. Passionate educators, the Borromeo String Quartet ncouraged the audience to explore and listen to both traditional and contemporary repertoire in new ways. They shared their enthusiasm for the use of ipads that enabled them to read full score, original manuscripts. The Master Class featured two local ensembles, - Asya Meshberg’s string quartet and a string duo from the Suzuki Music School of Westport and Orange.
MUSIC FOR YOUTH PROGRAMS
The FREE YOUNG PERSONS’ CONCERT series, now in it’s twentieth season, takes place Saturday afternoons in Southport, where monthly programs feature classical music as well as music from far-away lands, performed by acclaimed ensembles and soloists.
THE SCHOOL RESIDENCY PROGRAM has offered public schools the opportunity to work with professionals who coach, mentor and perform for students enrolled in music programs of the schools. Since 2007, a unique component of MFY’s school residency program has been the MUSICAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM. Middle School string orchestras from Bridgeport and Weston rehearse and perform together throughout the year, traveling to each other’s schools, sharing pizza and music, bridging differences and uniting in the study of their instruments.
The JERRY MALAFRONTE SCHOLARSHIP given in memory of Jerry Malafronte, is offered each year to Fairfield music students graduating from Warde and Ludlowe HS to continue their music studies in college or a music conservatory.
The Young Artist Showcase Series The Young Artist Ensemble Showcase provide opportunities for young musicians to share their music and perform in our community.
