Fall Concert Series, 2014

San Diego Public Library is pleased to announce the schedule for its Fall Concert Series at the Central Library auditorium. This season will include the return of local favorite musicians from past seasons as well as musicians new to our stage.

The annual series is made possible by the Friends of Central Library, the San Diego Public Library matching fund program, and public and private donations. The concerts are very important to the musicians in the series 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 residents and San Diego Residents.
