This summer, the Upper Catskill String Quartet will take listeners on an aural journey through the history of Western classical dance music, featuring selections from nine different composers spanning the 17th to 20th centuries. The program will feature the Suite for Strings by Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643-1704), the Ancient Airs and Dances by Ottorino Respighi (1879-1936), and the Rumanian Folk Dances by Bela Bartok (1881-1945) in addition to selections by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750), Georges Bizet (1838-1875), Johannes Brahms (1833-1897), Claude Debussy (1862-1918), Aaron Copland (1900-1990), and Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992).

This project is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrants Program, a program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature and administered in Schoharie County by the Green County Council on the Arts—CREATE Council for Resources to Enrich the Arts, Technology & Education.
