In real estate, they say that location, location, location is all-important. For today’s Art Under the Dome concerts, location played a big role as well. For the first time, we had a concert just outside the dome: a student brass ensemble. It was perfect. Inside, we tested another new location: woodwinds and French horns on the first floor near the Circulation Desk. That worked, too. The views from the 2nd floor balcony were great! But wherever you stood or sat to enjoy the performance, the music was wonderful!

SDSU is fortunate to have the Hausmann Quartet in its artist in residence program, and we at the library are especially lucky because they’re becoming a regular at our Art Under the Dome events. During their performances, they treat us to a wide variety of chamber music, from Haydn to Bach and beyond, which are usually segments of pieces they’re playing in upcoming concerts at Smith Recital Hall. Today’s performance included highlights from their Converge Concert Series.
