Arts In The Square is proud to present Picnic In The Square- a collaboration of the ‘picnic’ and classical music. Building on the rich history of classical music and the elaborate picnic, Picnic in the Square strives to create that romantic experience in Congress Square Park.
The Amarantos String Quartet was formed in Portland, Maine with the mission to reinvent the role of the quartet in the modern cultural landscape. Through presentation of new music, unique collaborations and original arrangements, violinists Lauren and Meagan McIntyre, violist/arranger Bryan Brash, and cellist Hannah are attracting new, diverse audiences to the chamber music genre. Classically trained, each member of the quartet has performed extensively with musicians from a wide variety of styles such as rock, pop, folk, world, and more. These collective experiences are the basis for what makes the Amarantos Quartet and their diverse repertoire a truly unique experience.
