NEWSLETTER FOR QUARTETS AND TRIOS

Dearest Musicians,

activities are starting over again throughout Europe and we are happy to let you know that we are working on residencies again. As you can imagine, hospitality is a sensitive topic but many Houses in our network have separated spaces to host your rehearsals and accommodation, as well as beautiful gardens and open spaces for your concerts. If you are looking for a quiet place where you can study and rehearse together, reach out to us at info@ledimoredelquartetto.eu and we will be happy to find the solution that fits your needs best. In the section "Plan your next residency", you will find some suggestions.

Le Dimore del Quartetto has been designing new projects over the lockdown and we are sure you have some great ideas too! We are planning a new DQ newsletter addressed to concert series and other musical stakeholders in our network in order to increase your visibility through our channels. For this reason, if you have artistic projects that you would like to share with us (special musical programs, videos, recordings etc.), you can send us the details to info@ledimoredelquartetto.eu and we will be happy to promote them!

Last but not least, we keep working on our YouTube Channel and we are completing our playlists dedicated to DQ ensembles and DQ Alumni. If you have any new video you want us to include, send us the link and we will add it up...right away!

Looking forward to listening to you again very soon,
Le Dimore del Quartetto team
