Morrison Artists Series to Begin 60th Season

Wednesday, September 09, 2015
SAN FRANCISCO CLASSICAL VOICE -- If there is anything like the Morrison Artists Series in the world, neither I nor Google know about it. Imagine a rich program of prominent chamber-music concerts, complete with lectures, pre-concert talks, and master classes — all free. You don't need to imagine it, because San Francisco State University has been offering the series for six decades. Artistic Director Richard Festinger says of the season: “These programs, featuring a wide-ranging variety of chamber music genres and repertoire from many periods performed by some of the greatest American and European ensembles on today’s concert stage, will be a perfect way to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Morrison Artists Series’s inestimable gift of superlative chamber music, admission-free, to San Francisco Bay Area audiences. It’s my great pleasure to continue to bring this storied legacy to the McKenna Theatre stage.”
