Officially christened in April 2011 with a recital by Weigang Li (’82), first violinist of the Shanghai Quartet, the Alumni Recital Series expanded in 2011-2012 into a full concert season. Designed to strengthen the Conservatory’s connections with alumni as well as the broader Bay Area community, the series brings several outstanding alumni artists back to their alma mater each year for command performances. By both greatly expanding upon the breadth of the Conservatory's concert offerings and displaying the enormous talent pool of the alumni community, performances in the Alumni Recital Series have quickly become some of the most popular events held at the institution.
2012-2013 Alumni Recital Series
Due to strong interest from both audience members and prospective alumni performers alike, we are proud to announce that the Alumni Recital Series Will be expanding for the 2012-2013 season to FOUR concerts, the first of which will be a newly created "Showcase" of Conservatory graduates, chosen through an application process by the Alumni Network Committee to perform and participate in this exciting new series.
