29th Anniversary Season, 2018–2019


The Athenaeum is happy to announce the new 2018–2019 season of the Barbara & William Karatz Chamber Series!


Enjoy chamber music as it was intended—in a warm, intimate setting, where you are treated as a guest in our historic home. All concerts are followed by a private reception with the artists.


These concerts are made possible in part, thanks to funding from the City of San Diego through a program managed by the Commission for Arts and Culture and the County of San Diego.
