October 30 @ 12:00 pm
Caprice Strings beautifully melds the string sounds of violin, viola, and cello into a trio ensemble. Caprice has performed widely over the past 20 years with an extensive repertoire that embraces baroque, classical, and contemporary works—from Bach to Mozart to Gershwin and The Beatles.
Caprice Strings performs music 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.
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.
Free concerts at noon every 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 Monday at noon and last about an hour.
The concerts will be in person at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library. There are no physical tickets for these events. Doors open at 11:50 a.m. Seating is first-come; first-served. These events will be presented in compliance with State of California and County of San Diego health regulations as applicable at the time of each concert.
