It’s the Beatles dressed up in a Circus!
Boston String Quartet to present “String Circus” featuring the Music of Sergeant
Pepper and the Beatles at Harbor Island Church, Block Island, on August 31st, at 7 pm.

This fall, the Beatles receive a completely new treatment when the Boston String Quartet
unveils their much anticipated 3rd annual concert series, “String Circus,” following close
on the heels of their latest series, “WorldSong”. Familiar songs such as A Day in the
Life, Fixing a Hole, and for the Benefit of Mr Kite receive their first ever performance
by a string quartet. Each piece will be accompanied by a video screen that will add visual
images to the performance. The Boston String Quartet will also be premiering four
completely original pieces on the program written by each of the four quartet members.

The Boston String Quartet is one of very few string ensembles forging new territory in
the string world by writing all original music and arrangements. Contemporaries and
collaborators with the Boston String Quartet include ensembles such as the GRAMMY
Winning Turtle Island and Kronos Quartets, and string celebrities such as Mark O
Connor and Edgar Meyer. “By writing original compositions for string quartet, we are
paving a way for our traditional instruments in a world of contemporary music” says
cellist, Christina Stripling.

Under 18 FREE! Concert tickets are $20 to the general public. For more information, or
