  • Morris Hosts Student Chamber Music Concert

    October 25, 2011

    Dr. Quinton Morris directs students from the String Performance program at the annual Fall Student Chamber Music Concert on Tuesday, November 22.

    Professor Morris, Director of Chamber and Instrumental Music, was honored in June with a 2011 Art Award from Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn for a “long list of achievements” including his “determination to make a difference for aspiring young musicians – particularly for youngsters of color who do not always have role models close at hand in the classical community.”

    The Bachelor of Music in String Performance is a professional degree program offered by Seattle University’s College of Arts and Sciences with an emphasis in solo and chamber music. The program allows students to receive conservatory-like training while also benefiting from the university’s liberal arts education. Each student in the program’s small cohort receives individual attention as they build a solid foundation of music fundamentals, history, theory and composition. The Music Division also features the Young Eight string octet as artists in residence and hosts guest artist master classes throughout the year.

    The concert takes place at 7:30 pm in the Piggott Auditorium. Tickets, available at the door, are $5 for SU students, $8 for SU faculty and staff and $12 for general admission.

    The Department of Fine Arts offers undergraduate degree programs with concentrations including music, theatre and visual arts, as well as a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Arts Leadership.
