28th Anniversary Season, 2017–2018


The 2017-2018 chamber series presents brand-new ensembles of young and experienced performers of award-winning talent from all over the world, including four concerts that are part of Curtis on Tour, the Nina von Maltzahn global touring initiative of the Curtis Institute of Music.


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.
