Free concerts at noon every other Monday from fall through spring . .
. no wonder the Mini-Concerts are the longest-running and one of the most
popular classical music series at the library! This series was founded
by Glenna Hazleton in 1970 at the Athenaeum, and has been going strong
ever since. The concerts feature both local and touring musicians, prize-winning
students, university music faculty members, local chamber ensembles. .
. and the repertoire also includes jazz, folk and world music. There are
no reservations, no tickets . . . just line up at the side door of the
Athenaeum before noon. (Donations are always welcome!) Mini-Concerts take
place every other Monday at noon and last about an hour.

Athenaeum Jacobs Mini-Concerts
Lyceum Theatre, downtown Horton Plaza
In 1973, energetic Glenna Hazleton decided to found
another series, this time in the downtown San Diego area. Since
then, fifteen free Mini-Concerts have been presented at the Lyceum
each year. Until the fall of 2004, the downtown series was governed
by the organization known as San Diego Mini-Concerts. Since then the Athenaeum has taken on the series.
