The Nissitissit String Quartet launches their 2023 series with “American Originals.” The program covers musical genres from revolutionary times to the present, starting with an early American suite, a Joplin rag, jazz standards from Harold Arlen, George Gershwin, and Cole Porter, folk masterpieces including Aaron
Copland’s “Hoedown,” rock tunes from Elvis to the Beach Boys, Broadway favorites featuring the Beauty and the Beast theme and selections from West Side Story, and a nod to Hollywood with a medley from Pirates of the Caribbean.
The Nissitissit String Quartet is four long-time colleagues and friends who have migrated from the Boston area and are committed to serving Northwest Middlesex County communities, offering multi-generational concerts that are fun and engaging for a wide audience.
