We Are "Your Tahquamenon Gateway"
We welcome you to Tahquamenon Country and the Tahquamenon Falls, attracting more than 750,000 visitors per year. The Legendary Tahquamenon Falls was made famous in the Longfellow poem Hiawatha. According to Indian lore, the origin of the name Tahquamenon is attributed to the water's amber color, which is the result of leaching of tanic acid from the cedar and hemlock swamps that feed the river. The Tahquamenon Falls is special in many ways. One little known fact is that it is the second largest waterfall east of the Mississippi, with Niagara being the largest. The Tahquamenon Falls are open year-round.

True North Quartet to Perform 8th Annual Chamber Music Concert a

7 Aug. 2017

Erickson Center for the Arts in Curtis, presents a chamber music concert. This program features the “True North Quartet,” a string quartet group from the Ann Arbor area, performing a program entitled “A Night at the Movies.” Violinists Paul Lundin, Karen Donato, and violist Joseph Deller return for their eighth year playing together for the Erickson Center. Katri Ervamaa will be the guest cellist this summer.
Samuel Barber’s “Adagio for Strings” has been heard in many movies over the years. True North will perform the entire quartet from which this excerpt comes, the Quartet opus 11. Movie composers owe much to the pioneers of movie music in the 1930s. Among those greats was Erich Korngold whose film credits include the original “Robin Hood”, “Captain Blood” and many others. Korngold’s Second String Quartet will top the evening off with soaring melodies and a very wild waltz.
This a free event, donations are always appreciated. Sponsored by the Curtis Buckeyes.
