About the Newport String Project
The Newport String Project is a chamber music performance and youth mentoring initiative that aims to build a community that crosses boundaries of generation, heritage, and economic circumstances through access to inspiring musical experiences for all. The project strengthens the social and cultural fabric of the Newport community by offering students free use of instruments, free weekly lessons and group activities, as well as a concert series in venues throughout Newport that features its resident musicians, the Newport String Quartet. Now in its tenth season, the project is focused on growing and sustaining the organization so that it can continue to build long-term and meaningful relationships between children, families, professional musicians, and the Newport community at large.
