About the Morrison Chamber Music Center 

SF State’s Morrison Chamber Music Center is home to the Jane H. Galante Concert Series, renamed in 2020 in memory of the center’s founding trustee. Formerly known as the Morrison Artists Series, it is the longest running chamber music concert series in San Francisco, featuring superb, admission-free performances by some of the world’s most acclaimed ensembles since 1955. The San Francisco Chronicle writes: “indispensable.”  

The Morrison Chamber Music Center also provides educational opportunities to students and the community including lectures, master classes, artist residencies, mentoring and school outreach. The center is funded, in part, by a generous gift from the May Treat Morrison Chamber Music Foundation.
