Support the SPSQC

The Saint Paul String Quartet Competition relies on the generous and enthusiastic support of friends, donors and volunteers. With your help, we will continue to produce our nationally recognized event, and bring Competition musicians into our community.

Consider sponsoring a string quartet to attend this event. There are considerable expenses in arriving at the SPSQC final rounds. Associated costs are coaching fees, travel food and lodging.

Consider the impact your support can have enriching the lives of these young musicians as they begin their musical careers. The SPSQC competition quartets and individuals populate the best conservatoires and music schools in the country. Several already have successful professional careers.

Consider a program AD. Bring your business and companies into the SPSQC family by taking out a supportive ad in our annual program book and online. Show the world what you believe in - hard working, creative young people and great music making!
