We are excited to host a very special musical event featuring the 14th and 15th String Quartets of Darius Milhaud (1892-1974), one of many artists and intellectuals who came to the San Francisco Bay Area seeking refuge from European fascism. The program draws from Milhaud's memoir, My Happy Life, archival holdings of The Magnes and Mills College Library, and an extensive interview with Felix Kuhner, second violinist of the famed Kolisch Quartet. Please RSVP here.



Co-presented with the Department of History
