Celebrating our alumni in performance
The Alumni Artist Insights Recital Series consists of performances and artist talks that showcase performing alumni and their stories. The interactive format shares the artist’s journey with audiences and brings a unique perspective to the music and performance.
Each spring, the Presidential Alumni Council (PAC) puts out a request for alumni to submit proposals to participate in the series. Three submissions are selected to be presented by SFCM in the following academic year. In its selection, the PAC considers inclusion of other alumni and/or SFCM students and faculty, innovative programming, and artistic excellence.
Due to the city's restrictions around public gatherings, we've had to press the pause button on the 2020-21 Series. We look forward to sharing with you a number of virtual experiences highlighting our alumni this fall. Stay tuned!
