SAN FRANCISCO CLASSICAL VOICE -- There is no more exceptional value for chamber-music audiences than the Morrison Artists Series at San Francisco State University, offering free admission to a season of first-class concerts, workshops, and lectures, all free, for the 63rd year.

When the Morrison-regular Alexander String Quartet opens the season on Sept. 16 (with music of Mozart, Penderecki and Mendelssohn), there will be a new man in charge of the Morrison Chamber Music Center, which oversees the series.

Succeeding Richard Festinger, conductor and SFSU School of Music Director Cyrus Ginwala says he and his predecessor “combined work on this transitional season, which includes new components, not always visible to the concert-going audiences.”
