Since 1994, the Classical Access program has brought the Diller-Quaile String Quartet to schools, day care centers, libraries, social service agencies, and senior centers throughout New York City. Recently this program has partnered with Dawning Village Day Care Center, Central Park East II School (CPE II), the Lillian Weber Dual Language School for Environmental Arts (P.S. 84), and the New York Public Libraries as a part of their Family Concert Series. Designed as an introduction to chamber music for groups of children, Classical Access residencies are a series of informal, hands-on presentations at each organization.
Classical Access is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, the New York State Council on the Arts, and The Morris and Alma Schapiro Fund.
Diller-Quaile is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that relies on contributions to its Annual Fund each year to help support its NYC Community Programs and Scholarship Fund.
