The UC San Diego campus community has always enjoyed chamber music performances, a tradition established by many of our founding faculty members. The origins of our Chamber Music series have their roots in the university concert series inaugurated in 1963. In 1996, Robert and Sonia Hamburger, both avid chamber music supporters and both on faculty at UC San Diego at the time, established the Hamburger Chamber Music Endowment Fund. When ArtPower was created in 2004, the Chamber Music series became an integral part of the program. The Founders Club gives ArtPower the opportunity to celebrate donors who have been giving in support of Chamber Music at UC San Diego for over 20 years. Thank you for all that you do for ArtPower.
