Westenn String Quartet Performs Music of William Grant Still May 30

[William Grant Still]
Linden, Tennessee
Once again, the Westenn String Quartet will perform an afternoon of classical chamber music in Perry County. The FREE concert will be held at Linden First Baptist Church at 2:30, this Saturday, May 30. A program of Music for America will include works of Benjamin Franklin—yes, the one with his face on our $100 bills—William Grant Still, Randall Thompson, and Antonin Dvorak. 

"Members of the string quartet are James Sparks, first violin; Susan Atkins, second violin; Marian Himmelreich, viola; and Carol Keith, cello.” “The Westenn String Quartet, presented by the Perry County Arts Committee, is funded in part by RC&D, a program of the United States Department of Agriculture, an equal opportunity provider and employer.” [Full Post] [William Grant Still (1895-1978) is profiled at, where a complete Works List by Dr. Dominique-René de Lerma is found.]
