Central Library Concert Series

The Central Library held the final concert for the 2023-2024 season in May.  Stay tuned—the Series will resume after a summer break, and we will announce the Fall 2024 concert schedule in early August!

Soon entering its 69th season, this signature program of the San Diego Central Library continues to provide free concerts for the downtown community and will feature ensembles from throughout Southern California.  

In addition to Concert Series events, the Library will continue its collaboration with the highly acclaimed Hausmann Quartet to present more concerts as part of The CINEMA + SOUND SERIES! Join us for the next program in September.  

Interested in live music…and maybe some dancing too?  Central Library’s Swing Dance Under the Dome program will continue throughout the summer and will feature THE MERCEDES MOORE BAND on June 17 and THE MAD HAT HUCKSTERS on July 22!  Visit the Events Calendar for more information and updates.  

THANK YOU to everyone who attended and supported the 2023-2024 Season, and to all of the outstanding musicians who shared their music with us!
