San Francisco Performances Partners with SF State, Alexander String Quartet

Thursday, November 12, 2015
SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE -- Ruth Felt has been active in spearheading arts education and outreach programs, including a joint residency program with San Francisco State University that sends the Alexander String Quartet, as well as other visiting artists, into local schools. It’s something she never anticipated when she started San Francisco Performances. “That was not part of my thinking at all, that it would be the responsibility of the professional arts world to undertake arts education,” Felt says. “But as it disappeared from the school curriculum, it all of a sudden landed on all of us, and we had to open our eyes and step up.”
