About the SQ Truck

New Haven adds another unique item to its list of delicacies on trucks: The String Quartet!

This June, while you soak up the warm lunch hour sun and savor the flavors of your favorite food trucks, feast on the sweet sounds of the String Quartet Truck.  For one thrilling week, New Haven’s own Haven String Quartet will perform live all over the city onboard a flatbed truck in conjunction with the International Festival of Arts & Ideas.

About Music Haven








Through the permanent residency of the Haven String Quartet, Music Haven provides world-class performances and free after school education programs that build long-term relationships between professional musicians, children, and families in six high-poverty Empowerment Zone neighborhoods of New Haven, CT.

In conjunction with these activities, the Haven String Quartet actively performs in other communities, providing engaging performances in traditional concert halls and reaching new audiences in non-classical venues.

The heart and soul of Music Haven is its after-school lessons program, which provides instruments and tuition-free music lessons to 75 youth who live in the Dixwell, Hill, Dwight, Newhallville, Fair Haven and West River neighborhoods. The lessons are taught by the Haven String Quartet, whose performances raise funds for programming.

  2. Heard you on Fox this morning. Great performance; loved the song “man in the mirror” one of the themes for our Take Charge Health Series. I am interested in engaging you for future events. Can you share or provide contact info to discuss further.
