Barefield Super String Quartet
Creative Arts Collective and Palmer Woods Association invite children, teachers and students to join us for a FREE educational concert for children on Friday, June 21, from 5-6 pm at a private home in the Palmer Woods neighborhood of Detroit (just north of Seven Mile Rd. and just west of Woodward Ave). The address will be provided with your reservations.
This adventurous ensemble —featuring guitarist A. Spencer Barefield, violinist/violist Jannina Barefield Norpoth, violinist/violist Curtis Stewart and bassist John-Paul Norpoth—straddles the boundaries of traditional and avant garde jazz, classical and other music idioms. They’ll play originals by Barefield and works by Monk, Mozart, Debussy, Piazzolla, Rodrigo, de Falla and others. Read more

Creative Arts Collective’s Music for Children series is a free outreach program designed for young audiences to hear and interact with some of Detroit’s most gifted jazz, classical and world music artists, who are part of the Palmer Woods Music in Homes concert series. Concerts are held in the intimate settings of mansions and architectural treasures in Detroit’s historic Palmer Woods community. Please visit our website, palmerwoods.org, to read about the concerts and more about the musicians.
The concert is most appropriate for children from 4th grade through high school level. For younger groups, we’ll need adult chaperones to participate and all children must be able to be part of a quiet, attentive audience. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and interact with the musicians. We look forward to seeing you. Priority seating will be given to students, with limited number of seats allocated for parents and chaperones. Tickets for the evening concerts are available for adults to purchase on palmerwoods.org.
To reserve seats for your group, please respond on this Eventbrite page or call Barbara Barefield at (313) 891-2514 by Thursday, June 13. Seating is limited and is on a first-come basis, so we encourage you to reserve seats as early as possible.
Now in its sixth season, Palmer Woods Music in Homes begins in December and concludes in June, in various magnificent and historically significant homes. The program now includes several free afternoon programs for Detroit-area children. Our goal is to share our valuable assets — Detroit’s great music and architectural/artistic residential “concert halls” — with our other valuable assets, our children!
We hope these special, intimate concerts will help to inspire our young musicians and children to become lifelong music lovers and future supporters of the arts; and perhaps sitting in our audience will be future Detroit stars, who will also share their talents with the next generation.
