SF STATE NEWS -- The Morrison Artists Series, a performing arts institution since 1956, is organized by the May Treat Morrison Chamber Music Center. The center’s aim is to advance the art of chamber music and encourage its appreciation. Offering world-class performances at no cost, it has presented more than 350 concerts attended by more than 100,000 guests. “This season’s 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,” said Richard Festinger, professor of Music and artistic director of the series. “This series provides an inestimable gift of superlative chamber music, admission free, to San Francisco Bay Area audiences.” Festinger noted that chamber music concerts of this caliber typically cost between $60 and $100 per ticket.
