About This Special Event

Join San Francisco Performances for an evening in celebration of the Alexander String Quartet’s 35th anniversary as our Ensemble-in-Residence.

The festivities take place at the War Memorial Veterans Building, 401 Van Ness Avenue, and begin with cocktails in the Green Room at 6:00pm. A concert with the Quartet follows at 7:00pm in the Herbst Theatre. After the performance, guests will return to the Green Room for an elegant dinner and fund-a-need drive. Robert Greenberg—music historian and longtime partner of the ASQ on the Saturday Morning Series—joins us as the master of ceremonies.

Proceeds from the Gala benefit San Francisco Performances’ education programs. Your participation helps us bring world-class musicians into Bay Area classrooms and community centers with programs designed to increase awareness and participation in the arts.
