The Newport String Project is excited to share a unique installment of Hidden Newport, our virtual concert series showcasing some of Newport’s most beautiful and unusual locations through virtual chamber music concerts. This performance, premiering on March 21st at 2pm on our YouTube Channel, features the musicians of the Newport String Quartet performing duos and solos at the Chapel by the Sea at the Seamen’s Church Institute. Named by Mercury Magazine as one of the “seven quiet places to gather your thoughts and nourish your soul,” the chapel pays homage to Christian saints associated with the sea, who were commonly called upon by mariners in need of strength and guidance. The program will include works by Astor Piazzolla, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Johann Sebastian Bach.
