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.
