Violinist Kip Jones plays the violin with the ETHEL string quartet in a Rockport Music-sponsored program for fourth graders Tuesday at West Parish Elementary School in Gloucester. Described as the world's premier post-classical quartet, the New York-based ETHEL typically plays with amplification and incorporates improvisation into its performances. The group is in residence on Cape Ann this week as part of Rockport Music's Education and Outreach Program. In addition to West Parish, the group has been giving interactive presentations at Veterans Memorial and East Gloucester schools in Gloucester, and Rockport High School and Middle School. On Thursday at 7 p.m. ETHEL will give a free community concert at the Shalin Liu Performance Center at 37 Main Street in Rockport.
