GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- With the help from SF State’s College of Liberal & Creative Arts, School of Music Director Cyrus Ginwala will be hosting a University-wide zoom event today in order to bring the academic year to a close and celebrate its students.

The free virtual celebration will begin with an introduction from President Lynn Mahoney and will include a performance of Antonin Dvorak’s “American” Quartet followed by a Q&A with SF State’s “longtime quartet-in-residence,” according to SF State’s College of Liberal & Creative Arts website.

“Ultimately, this helps increase the value of their degree by highlighting its quality.
