Our Outreach activities are as important to us as our performances. We believe that music is the gym of the mind. It stretches the imagination, teaches empathy and understanding, and sets the stage for the next generation of innovators and success stories - across all industries in society.
The Friends of the Opus 76 Quartet’s goal is to improve society’s ability to listen to one another, calmly, and promote greater understanding for the different perspectives on life we all have.
Through its manner of presenting classical music in an accessible and innovative way relevant to modern society’s needs and norms, it delivers advocacy for the problems our community faces, encourages volunteerism and donations, and demonstrates awareness of the common dignity we all share as human beings - irrespective of social or economic status.

Keith, one of our violinists, was interviewed recently and asked to explain why "The Friends of The Opus 76 Quartet" thinks that Classical Music is "essential."
Engaging with music is a brilliantly effective workout for the mind - and the great thing about it is you don't have to be an expert instrumentalist to experience that. Just by listening, and mentally engaging with music, you get an intellectual workout which is proven to improve critical thinking, the capacity for imagination and empathy, and independent, outside-the-box thought - those we now call "innovators." Here Ashley Stanfield, our violist, speaks to this in a little more detail.
