Free concerts at noon every other Monday from fall through spring . . . no wonder the Mini-Concerts are the longest-running and one of the most popular classical music series at the library! This series was founded by Glenna Hazleton in 1970 at the Athenaeum, and has been going strong ever since. The concerts feature both local and touring musicians, prize-winning students, university music faculty members, local chamber ensembles. . . and the repertoire also includes jazz, folk and world music. There are no reservations, no tickets . . . just line up at the side door of the Athenaeum before noon. (Donations are always welcome!) Mini-Concerts take place every other Monday at noon and last about an hour.

Lyceum Theatre, downtown Horton Plaza

In 1973, energetic Glenna Hazleton decided to found another series, this time in the downtown San Diego area. Since then, fifteen free Mini-Concerts have been presented at the Lyceum each year. Until the fall of 2004, the downtown series was governed by the organization known as San Diego Mini-Concerts. Since then the Athenaeum has taken on the series.

These concerts are made possible in part, thanks to funding from the City of San Diego through a program managed by the Commission for Arts and Culture and the County of San Diego. This Program is funded in part by Horton Plaza Theatre Foundation, an organization funded by the City of San Diego Special Promotion Programs.
