The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library is one of the few places in San Diego where you can enjoy chamber music as it was intended- in an intimate venue. The Athenaeum's Chamber Concert Series began in 1990 and was renamed the Barbara and William Karatz Chamber Concert Series in 2003. Held in the library’s 160-seat Joan & Irwin Jacobs Music Room, the six-concert annual series features internationally recognized classical musicians and ensembles, each followed by a private reception with the artists.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m. Guest names will be on a will call list at the door. Please note that seating is on a first-come, first-seated basis. Only members at the Donor level and above receive reserved seating.

On Nov. 23 Athenaeum will bring Anton Nel & St. Petersburg Quartet to the stage.

An acclaimed Beethoven interpreter, Johannesburg native Anton Nel has performed the concerto cycle several times. Nel is joined by the Grammy-nominated St. Petersburg String Quartet, an awardwinning ensemble. The quartet recently celebrated their 20th anniversary with an international tour. This concert is partly underwritten by Vail Memorial Fund.
