Event

Old Walpole Meetinghouse Candlelight Concert featuring the Daponte String Quartet
Experience the 18th century in the glow of flickering candles for a very unique DaPonte String Quartet concert. The concert will be held at the all-original, pre-revolutionary, Old Walpole Meetinghouse on Sunday September 11, 2016 at 7:00pm (doors open at 6:30pm).

Tickets are $25 and are available only by pre-purchase. Ticket outlets are (by cedit card) through Brown Paper Tickets' website, or (by check) at the Maine Coast Bookstore in Damariscotta, the Walpole Barn in Walpole (Rt. 129), or the Framers Gallery in Boothbay (Meadow Mall). To make other arrangements for tickets, please call 563-5471 or e-mail info@oldwalpolemeetinghouse.org.

The Meetinghouse is located 3.5 miles south of Damariscotta off Route 129 at 4 Meetinghouse Road in South Bristol.

The DaPonte String Quartet is comprised of Lydia Forbes and Ferdinand Liva on violin, Kirsten Monke on viola, and Myles Jordan on cello.

The Quartet has performed at Carnegie Hall, been featured on CBS Sunday Morning, and toured in France, Scotland, and Canada, as well as in over twenty American states. They have broadcast on nation-wide radio and television both in the United States and Canada, received awards from the NEA, Philadelphia Musical Fund Society, Music Teachers National Association, Chamber Music America, and Maine Arts Commission. They have also recorded three CDs, with a fourth coming next fall on Centaur Records.

The Meetinghouse is on the National Register of Historic Places and is an exquisite example of colonial architecture, which includes a soaring hand-carved pulpit. The proceeds from this concert benefit the maintenance of the structure. In particular, the original 12 over 12 light windows are in need of restoration.

Open seating for the concert is in the original box pews, and with the Quartet posed on a central elevated platform, gives the performance a theater-in-the-round effect. Quartet violinist, Dino Liva has commented, The Meetinghouse has the best acoustics of any venue we play.

Please bring a cushion for comfort and flashlights to guide you to your vehicles after the event.
