SDSU Chamber Music Groups to Perform Downtown

By Elizabeth Allison

On Sunday, Oct. 21 at 2:30 p.m., the SDSU School of Music and Dance and the Downtown Central Library will present a free Chamber Music Showcase featuring the top student ensembles representing SDSU’s string, piano, wind, and brass chamber music programs.

The performance, in the Central Library’s Neil Morgan Auditorium, will feature student chamber ensembles performing side by side with their mentors from the Westwind Brass, and SDSU Ensemble in Residence the Hausmann Quartet.

“In chamber music study, leadership, responsibility, cooperation, and collaboration are cultivated in a setting where each performer plays a different musical instrument without relying on the leadership of a conductor,” said SDSU Lecturer Isaac Allen.

The School of Music and Dance and the Downtown Central Library see the Chamber Music Showcase as an opportunity to provide learning experiences to students, and to be a powerful community resource. Through chamber music, students learn how to be more aware and acute listeners and performers.

The program features chamber music repertoire spanning the centuries and is a celebration of SDSU’s strong commitment to the art of chamber music.

“This performance is a showcase of the work that our students put into their journey to become not only great musical performers, but also artistic leaders and critical thinkers,” said Allen.

The Chamber Music Showcase will begin at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, October 21. The performance will take place at the Central Library’s Neil Morgan Auditorium, located at 330 Park Blvd, San Diego, CA 92101. Admission is free.
