We're thrilled to announce our 7th season of innovative concerts in San Diego. Following our highly successful 6th season, which saw record audiences and ticket sales at The San Diego Museum of Art, along with debut concerts at Lux Art Institute in Encinitas, Luce Loft space in downtown San Diego, and the Malcolm X Library in Emerald Hills/Valencia Park, we are excited to program a season of "Reflections," presenting four concerts at The San Diego Museum of Art that create a musical lens through which to explore what it means to be human.

Read on to learn how you can be a part of the Art of Élan experience and mark your calendars for this year's concerts at The San Diego Museum of Art:
October 15th, 2013
November 26th, 2013
February 25th, 2014

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Jonathan Swift wrote that, "No wise men ever wished to be younger," yet the desire for youthfulness remains an eternal obsession. Our Season 7 opening concert features Mendelssohn's lively String Quartet No.2 (written when he was just 18 years old) as well as The Juliet Letters by Elvis Costello (a series of imaginary letters to a young Juliet, written for string quartet and voice). This program reveals the impetuous, dramatic and often highly emotional nature of youth.
Help us continue to provide FREE community concerts in San Diego!!
For those of you who were at our May concert at the Malcolm X Library in Emerald Hills/Valencia Park, you already know how passionate we are about bringing our innovative concerts to the many diverse communities of San Diego.

Art of Élan intends to offer additional FREE community events this season, and with the generosity of long-time supporter Carol Stensrud Lazier, we are thrilled to announce a challenge grant that can help make these concerts happen.

Any gift to Art of Élan, made between now and December 31st, 2013, will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $1500.  Please consider a donation for this worthy cause, and we'll look forward to updating you with our concert plans!!
