SFCM and California Music Center Announce a New Collaboration

SFCM to Host Irving M. Klein International String Competition

California Music Center and The San Francisco Conservatory of Music are embarking upon a new collaboration, which will bring the Irving M. Klein International String Competition to the Conservatory’s Caroline H. Hume Concert Hall beginning June, 2016. The Klein Competition, now in its 31st year, was previously presented at San Francisco State University.

Mitchell Sardou Klein, artistic director of the competition since its inception in 1986, expressed his excitement about the partnership. “We are so pleased to be bringing the remarkable young musicians who perform at the Irving M. Klein International Competition to the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, which has become a focal point for great music making on the West Coast. We expect that this collaboration will be immensely fruitful for both organizations, but also will also enable a wider audience to experience the extraordinary artistry of these performers.”
