The Bach Society of Atlanta’s String Quartet will fill Ritz Park with the sounds of classical music at 8 p.m. Friday, July 15 at a concert in the park. The event is free to the public. The Bach Society’s main focus is to reach school children and adults who may not have had an opportunity to hear classical music played by a string quartet, said Barnesville mayor Peter Banks.
The Kazanetti String Quartet is an award-winning group that has distinguished itself across the country through its diverse programming and its commitment to excellence.
Newly-appointed Artists-in-Residence at Georgia College, Kazanetti’s mission statement— to serve, to enrich, and to educate through the voice of music—embodies its desire to make music available to everyone. Recently, Kazanetti returned from France as one of the selected quartets to perform at the Debussy Conference in Paris.
Performers include Michele Mariage Volz, violin; Elizabeth Alvarex, violin and viola; Julie Rosseter, viola and violin; and George Butler, violoncello.
Through its original kazanetti4kids programming, it combines music, reading, literacy, and the core academic curriculum to connect with the community.
