March Concerts Canceled

To Our Many Friends:

We take the health and well-being of our entire community very seriously and we acknowledge the increasing concerns over the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, we have made the decision to cancel the remainder of our March concerts and to cancel the DSQ Institute in June.

Please know that this decision, although we are comfortable that it is the correct decision, will have direct financial ramifications on our group. Please consider helping us out in this time of such unusual circumstances, by donating your ticket price or lending a hand with an additional financial contribution. Anything you can contribute will help sustain us in these unsettled times.

It is our intention to reschedule the cancelled March concerts. We will endeavor to keep you posted about those offerings as soon as information becomes available.

We are offering three options to our current ticket-holders of these cancelled concerts. They may:

  • use their ticket as credit toward any future DaPonte String Quartet concert through the end of 2020 (including the possibly rescheduled concert).
  • OR, donate their ticket to Friends of DaPonte String Quartet. As our concert cancellations will have a dire financial impact on FDSQ, patron generosity is greatly appreciated during this challenging and uncertain time.
  • OR, request a refund for their ticket.

Feel free to contact our Executive Director, Lisa Westkaemper, at 207-315-7105, or lisa@daponte.org for further information.

Stay safe! Stay healthy! Follow all the guidelines that have now become familiar recommendations and try to find a space for yourself that feels comfortable in this time of stress.

Many thanks for all that you do - with us and for us!
