Overview

Dr. Mark Lomax and ensemble join the Morrison Artist Series to perform excerpts from the critically acclaimed masterpiece 400: An Afrikan Epic.

This residency is the most ambitious outreach effort the Morrison Chamber Music Center has made to engage audiences and students and bring under-represented styles of music to the forefront. In addition to the Saturday concert, Dr. Lomax and the Alexander String Quartet will be reaching out to San Francisco schools with under-represented populations.

We are very excited about this collaboration and will post details out soon! Dr. Lomax's residency is co-sponsored by San Francisco State University's Department of Africana Studies and The School of Music. Support for artist residency of the Mark Lomax Quartet is provided by Fred Levin, The Shenson Foundation in Memory of Ben and A. Jess Shenson.
