As Ensemble-in-Residence at SF State since 1989, the Alexander String Quartet (ASQ) has brought artistic distinction and a reputation for excellence to the College of Liberal & Creative Arts and its School of Music. The quartet’s status as Ensemble-in-Residence was established through a unique “town and gown” partnership between SF State, the Morrison Chamber Music Foundation, and SF Performances. The ASQ provides the highest levels of artistic education while maintaining a world-renowned presence in the art of chamber music performance.
Because its members are not tenured faculty any change in players could alter the quartet’s association with the University. The ASQ’s future as Ensemble-in-Residence at SF State can be best secured with a dedicated and named endowment.
