Caprice Strings | Mini-Concert
November 8, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
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.
Caprice Strings performs music for weddings and receptions in a broad range of styles and settings, from formal catholic masses at USD’s Immaculata Cathedral to outdoor ceremonies at Balboa Park. They have performed at virtually every major hotel in the San Diego area. Consider us for preludes, ceremonies, rehearsal dinners, cocktails, receptions, or celebration breakfasts.
They have been featured at the daily luncheon in the Garden Room of the U.S. Grant Hotel, appeared in recital in the historic Villa Montezuma, performed at exclusive Nordstrom events, and played for special occasions such as the Challenger reception for Sail America, and for the inaugural cruise of the Royal Viking Sun.
