ST. PAUL, Minn. — The Arianna String Quartet has been a part of the Madeline Island Music Camp for several seasons.

The members say they most enjoy working with young artists in an intense way. Intensity is the word that best describes the Arianna Quartet's performance of the Mendelssohn String Quartet in f minor from last month at Madeline Island.

Listen for the audience cheering at the end -- and don't be surprised if you find yourself whooping it up too after this amazing performance!
