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, Conn.
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 Rock neighborhoods. The lessons are taught by the Haven String Quartet, whose performances help raise funds for programming.
