The DaPonte String Quartet will celebrate the release of its latest CD, “Pathways to Healing: Music of Mendelssohn and Beethoven,” on Sept. 25.

The string quartet recorded the CD at Head Tide Church in Alna. Grammy Award-winning engineer Bob Ludwig of Gateway Mastering produced the disc.

It includes Felix Mendelssohn’s string quartet Opus 13 and the work that inspired it, Ludwig van Beethoven’s quartet Opus 132. Both works, written within two years of each other, exploring the restoration of health, especially emotional health, through musical means.

Recorded on the Centaur Records label, the CD is available at and will be available in retail stores and on iTunes soon.

DaPonte will host a CD-launch party at 3:30 p.m. Sept. 25 at Jewel Lodge at Kiueve-Wavus, 88 Wavus Point Road, Jefferson. Tickets are $50 and are available on the group’s website or by calling 529-4555.
