Avedis Chamber Music Series






"...musicianship at its zenith" – SF Classical Voice

"For more than 30 years, Avedis — the fine series led by flutist Alexandra Hawley — has been regaling San Francisco audiences with a variety of chamber music, performed by a shifting constellation of the areas leading instrumentalists. From Bach to the modern era, this is a reliable source of amiable music-making." – San Francisco Chronicle

Subscribe to three or four Avedis concerts for value discounts (and for even greater savings, subscribe by December 31, 2017). Concerts are in the beautiful Gunn Theater (formerly the Florence Gould Theater) at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco.
