Southbank Quartet

The Southbank Quartet of the Northern Kentucky School of Music of Immanuel (NKYSM) was formed in 2012. The group is referred to as "Musicians at work"! All members are dedicated to the community’s needs, with a targeted focus on youth outreach and enrichment.

The Quartet members teach private lessons to over 90 string students at NKYSM. The members also teach and direct the Mozart (1st year) and Beethoven (2nd year) Strings Programs, which offer an introduction to stringed instruments and repertoire. These classes are offered as after-school classes for 3rd - 5th graders in 12 local Kentucky elementary schools. The Southbank Quartet continues to reach other students through workshops with the Youth Orchestra and Youth Sinfonia at NKYSM, and with Connor and Highlands Middle and High School String Programs. When the group is not making their mark on the community’s youth through education, they are busy performing for students and families and sharing the beautiful gift of music!

Congratulations Southbank Quartet!

The Southbank Quartet was given an initial $10,000 grant to perform in local schools and to help assist their mission in educating our community’s youth. Since that first gift, $11,500 has been added.

The Northern Kentucky School of Music of Immanuel sincerely thanks Albert E. Harris for this amazing gift!
