The DaPonte String Quartet will perform a free holiday concert in Newcastle on Sunday, December 10, at 3 p.m.

Every year for the past two decades the Quartet have offered Mid-Coast residents a free holiday concert. "This is our Christmas gift to the community that has welcomed and supported us since we first moved here from Philadelphia," explains DSQ violinist Ferdinand "Dino" Liva.

This year's program will include music by Scarlatti, a Mozart quartet, Britten's Simple Symphony, and some Renaissance motets. Refreshments will be provided, courtesy of Damariscotta's finest purveyors of food.

The DaPonte String Quartet, Maine's premier string ensemble, are celebrating their 26th year as a quartet. Founded in 1991 in Philadelphia, they moved to Midcoast Maine 21 years ago on an NEA rural residency grant, fell in love with the state, decided to stay, and now perform over 50 times a year, year round, from Presque Isle to Ogunquit.

The concert will be performed December 10 at 3 pm at the Second Congregational Church, 51 Main St., Newcastle. Admission is free. For more information visit www.DaPonte.org or call 529-4555.
