I was expecting one chamber music ensemble for today’s Art Under the Dome. Instead, we got…well, maybe the whole department! Reeds, strings, and voices joined in to provide a wonderful variety of music under the dome this afternoon. SDSU’s talented student musicians were at their best!

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.

The Hausmann Quartet performed today as part of Art Under the Dome. Their beautiful music brightened a dreary, rainy afternoon.

Four student musical groups from SDSU’s School of Music and Dance entertained us today during “Art Under the Dome,” including our first jazz ensemble! With the pressure of finals and the end of the semester upon us, this was a welcome and inspiring respite from classes, schoolwork, and the daily grind. As author Berthold Auerbach said, “Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” How true!

Below are a few photos from today’s student chamber music concerts at the SDSU Library. Let me just say that “Art Under the Dome” is off to a great start! Bravo to all who put this together!

The library has entered into an exciting partnership with the College of Professional Studies and Fine Arts to integrate visual and performance arts in the library. “Art Under the Dome” begins today (Nov. 8) at 12:15 p.m. with two performances by SDSU student chamber music ensembles—a string quintet and harp and violin duo (sponsored by the School of Music and Dance). Each performance will last around 10 minutes and are samples of the pieces the students will perform in concerts later in the semester.

“Art Under the Dome” will include performances of music ensembles, theater, and art exhibits. We hope you can join us for these performances and exhibits over the course of the semester!
