In the Chamber Music Series at the Legion of Honor, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco present free concerts in collaboration with the San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music (SFFCM). Now in its fourth season, this popular series is held one Sunday each month from January to June. Concerts are from noon to 2:00 p.m. in the Rodin Gallery (Gallery 10) and are free of charge after museum admission. The performing ensembles are either affiliates of SFFCM or recipients of grants from the Musical Grant Program, and together they represent the tremendous diversity of musical talent here in the Bay Area.
April 21: Hausmann Quartet
The Hausmann Quartet’s vision is to make chamber music a vital, relevant, and widely appreciated art form, one community at a time. By creating a platform for chamber music to thrive, the quartet intends to spark a new movement of engaged listening in our society. Through a strong commitment to creative musical programs and collaborative partnerships, its mission is to infuse the community with chamber music by providing the intimacy and accessibility of a garage band–style organization with the artistic integrity of world-class concert artists.
