New York String Quartets Educational Programs
The Clinton String Quartet also has
developed several educational programs. Past educational programming included a dramatic
presentation focusing on the life of Beethoven. This program utilized the talents of Mr.
John Davies (portraying Beethoven) and followed the life of Beethoven through his own
words and music. In addition to this program the Clinton String Quartet has
developed an in-residency program that was first used in the Liverpool Central School
District in 1998. During this residency the Clinton String Quartet performed for
every 3rd grade student in the district and every middle school and high school string
player in the district, designing several different age appropriate presentations.
