A gem in the cultural landscape of West Texas, the Harrington String Quartet was established by a generous gift from the late Sybil B. Harrington to benefit the Panhandle community. From its founding in 1981, the quartet has brought “stellar credentials” and “a refined sense of ensemble and musical integrity” to performances across the nation and internationally. During the summer of 2015, the quartet returned to Europe as performing guests at the International Festival of Chamber Music (Bulgaria), Sofia Music Weeks (Bulgaria) and Musica in Univerista (Italy).  Highlights from past seasons include a New York debut in Carnegie’s Weill Hall and the PBS documentary A Sound Collaboration – The Harrington String Quartet. The quartet has also enjoyed collaborations with world-renowned artists David Shifrin, Pepe Romero, James Dick, William Preucil, James Dunham, Robert Levin, Alon Goldstein, Guy Yehuda, Arthur Rowe, and members of the Cavani, Miró, and Pro Arte String Quartets.

The Pampa Community Concert Association has been presenting internationally acclaimed artists to the community since 1944. Season ticket holders can enjoy a wide range of artists: In September, there was a Beach Boys tribute band, in October, Rodney Marsalis and friends performed brass and jazz. Dan Miller’s Cowboy Music will be February 17, and Sons of Serendip, an America’s Got Talent finalist, will perform March 12.  There will be a second FREE performance sponsored by PCCA in February by Lone Star Ballet “Riders of the Plains” on February 19.
