On Sunday March 31st at 2pm, the Newport String Project will present a concert at Trinity Church featuring the work of Rhode Island-based composer Kirsten Volness. 

Scored for string quartet and digital sound, Volness’ “Tree of Life” is a musical ode to trees from the Weeping Willow to the Coastal Redwood and celebrates the connective life force evoked by nature. Volness will join forces with the Newport String Quartet for a not-to-be-missed performance of this evocative piece. The quartet will also perform Franz Joseph Haydn’s bucolic Quartet in D Major “The Lark” and Johannes Brahms’ invigorating String Quartet in a minor.

Admission by donation. Suggested donation $10, $25 & $50+. All proceeds support the performance and educational programming of the Newport String Project.
