The Library began its Chamber Music Series in the mid-1950s. Critical and popular response encouraged the Library to increase the scope of the series into its present status of a Fall Concert Series and a Winter/Spring Concert Series. These series are made possible by the Friends of the Central Library, the San Diego Public Library matching fund program, and public and private donations. The concerts are very important to musicians because they provide a venue for them to perform locally. The community has responded enthusiastically as well, as shown by steadily growing attendance by musicians, music lovers, music appreciation students and San Diego residents.
