Dear Friends,

I wanted to bring to your attention that the Seattle Times has highlighted my BREAKTHROUGH World Tour and Short Film in today's newspaper:

The tour has been incredibly successful with a wonderful debut at Les Arts Decoratifs in the Louvre Museum and a residency at the Universitie of Paris last month.  I am currently preparing for the next leg of the tour, which will take me to Guadeloupe in March.  I will be sharing more information about all of the exciting upcoming events about the tour in my newsletter next month!

The article also highlights a special performance with my collaborator Alastair Edmonstone and a panel discussion I will participant in with Seattle artist/writer Barbara Earl Thomas and STEM educator Zithri Saleem on the visual artwork of Kehinde Wiley.  This event will take place on Wednesday, February 24, 2016 (7:00pm) at the Northwest African American.  If you are in the Seattle area, I would love to see you there!

Finally, my nonprofit organization, The Quinton Morris Project is still accepting donations towards the BREAKTHROUGH World Tour.  The tour takes us to some very remote areas to provide educational and community projects to students who have very limited resources.  We provide everything from music lessons to manuscript paper and instruments to those students who can't afford it.  Your participation and gift is greatly appreciated.

I look forward to connecting with you again very soon.

Best wishes,

Local virtuoso violinist — and general polymath — Quinton Morris talks about the Kehinde Wiley exhibit at SAM and his world tour to teach audiences about Caribbean-born composer Chevalier de Saint-Georges.

Ask virtuoso violinist Quinton Morris what he’s working on at the moment, and his answer spans thousands of miles and several centuries.

In Seattle, where he lives, Morris will appear Feb. 24 at Northwest African American Museum (NAAM), where he will perform and participate in a panel discussion about the Kehinde Wiley exhibit at Seattle Art Museum.
