The Morrison Artists' Series presents the Alexander String Quartet, SFSU's quartet in residence, in an afternoon performance Sunday at the McKenna Theater.

The performance begins at 3 p.m. Sunday. Selections will include Mozart's Quartet in G major, K. 387, Janacek's Quartet No. 1 Kreutzer Sonata and Beethoven's Quartet in C major, Op. 59, No. 3 Razumovsky.

The quartet has been performing and recording chamber music since 1981. It's members, violinists Zakarias Grafilo and Frederick Lifsitz, violist Paul Yarbrough and cellist Sandy Wilson, have been directors of the Morrison Chamber Music Center's instructional music program at SFSU since 1989. The quartet has been compared to the Budapest String Quartet, which captivated international chamber music fans from the 1930s to 1960s.

The Morrison Artists' Series, a part of the Morrison Chamber Music Center, presents six free performances each year. Through the Center's instructional program, members of the Quartet coach chamber musicians in the SFSU music program. The Center is funded through a grant from the May Treat Morrison estate.
