Pacific Artist Series

Nineteenth Season 2021-2022

The Pacific Artists Series is the flagship cycle of concerts presented by the Music Department of Fresno Pacific University. The series derives it title from the university name and one of the aspects of its mission—facilitating peace around the community and the world.

A variety of musical styles and genres are brought to the FPU campus by the Pacific Artist Series. Notable past performers have included Janai Brugger (soprano), Rong-Huey Liu (oboe), Francesca Dego (violin), Eugene Friesen (cello), Ruta Bloomfield (harpsichord), Andrew Funk (bass), Del Sol Quartet and many more. Additionally, FPU's talented music faculty, as well as many former students, have also presented concerts in the series' history.
