The DaPonte String Quartet will play its annual holiday concert series beginning Sunday at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 1 Middle St. in Brunswick.

The quartet will play mostly traditional and festive classical music. Quartet members spent the past month creating arrangements and transcriptions of traditional music using electric violin, cello and viola.

Concert-goers will hear an electric string version of “Fanfare for the Common Man,” usually played on brass instruments and percussion. They will also hear arrangements of Pachelbel’s “I Want You Back,” Brian Head’s “Lobster Tail,” Bach’s “Concerto for Two Violins” and “Three Canzones” by Giovanni Gabrieli. The quartet will also perform a selection of Renaissance dance music.

“We’re working on a digital delay to make the music of Gabrieli sound like it is bouncing off the walls of a huge cathedral, like San Marco in Venice, where he used to play,” said violinist Ferdinand Liva.

The holiday concerts will be performed in four venues: 3 p.m. Sunday at Unitarian Universalist Church, 1 Middle St. in Brunswick; 7 p.m. Dec. 12 at Hammond Hall, 427 Main St. in Winter Harbor; 7 p.m. Dec. 13 at St. Columba’s Church, 32 Emery Way in Boothbay Harbor; and 3 p.m. Dec. 14 at Second Congregational Church, 51 Main St. in Newcastle.
