In a partnership with CA Biennial Festival, this Chamber Music Tuesday features SFCM alumni ensemble L'Arc Trio in performance with students. The concert also features two new and exciting works by Bay Area composers Jonathan Bingham and Vivian Fung, as well as one of Ernest Bloch's greatest chamber music works.

About SFCM’s String and Piano Chamber Music Department
The String and Piano Chamber Music degree and diploma programs are a year-round focus on chamber music, providing the same atmosphere of a summer festival. Performance opportunities are wide-ranging through workshops, masterclasses, and concerts for the public—all while playing regularly with acclaimed industry professionals and faculty.

The String and Piano Chamber Music program is one of SFCM’s most selective. Intentionally small, the program allows for several talented individuals each year, meaning that students in the program enjoy unrivaled access to learn from and perform with top faculty and accomplished guest artists.
Chamber Music Students will experience high profile performance opportunities through SFCM’s unique Chamber Music Residency Series, giving members of the program the opportunity to intensely and perform closely with exciting and world renowned chamber musicians.
