I wanted to personally thank you for bringing the Cascade Quartet to Glasgow this past weekend. They are not only outstanding performers and music ambassadors; they offer first-rate string instruction as well.

The opportunity to have the Cascade Quartet present live string instrument music in Hobson was wonderful. Special funding of the Symphony made it possible for the Judith Arts Society to afford the performance.

There are two or three school shows that stand out in my mind as being the most ravenously received the by kids and the Cascade Quartet was one of those. The other thing I can tell you about their evening program is that they were absolutely exceptional and what happened is that the crowd absolutely demanded an encore.

Our community members strongly support these events and, in times like these where we have a lot of economic difficulty, particularly in small communities, programs such as these play a very large part in strengthening our community. I would certainly hope that you would strongly consider keeping this funding in place–its very hard to describe how important they are.
Judy Berg, Chairman of the Meagher County Arts Council, White Sulphur Springs, Montana
I live in Glasgow and we serve the communities of Sidney, Chinook, and Malta as well as Glasgow and four rural schools. We have brought in both the Chinook Winds and the Cascade Quartet, several times, by the way. The last time we brought in the Cascade Quartet, I remember our discussion when we said it was important for the kids in our part of the world to see that strings are more than just guitars.
Sharon Labonty, President, Northeastern Arts Network, Montana
I would highly recommend the Cascade String Quartet to any school function. You will greatly enjoy this experience. Each staff member at Roy School had only good comments to share about this presentation.
Valerie Frisbie, Music Teacher, Roy, Montana
The Quartet was fantastic! I couldn’t have imagined a better group for our community concert series!
