Coming Concerts

The COVID-19 pandemic left us without a place to perform in July 2020, so we got creative and formed four quartets who rehearsed outdoors in a park. In July 2021 we celebrated our 25th anniversary with 3 concerts the evening of July 18. We presented 5 string quartets (or trio or quintet) at each of these programs, a total of 15 string groups!

Our Gala Concert at 2 pm on Sunday, July 24, 2022, will be at the Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda, California. Open to the public, all are welcome to attend. There is no admission fee and the exhibit will be open as well.

Scholarships and Awards
The Richard Anshutz Memorial Scholarship, awarded by the faculty, is presented to a high quality musician, returning for a second (or more) summer, who demonstrates enthusiasm, dedication to completing a task and makes the effort to go above and beyond the call of duty as a musician. This Scholarship provides a full tuition grant. You may learn more about Richard Anshutz here.

The Hennings-Fischer Foundation Grant generously provided a grant that allowed us to provide every student with a $125 scholarship to lower the tuition fees.
