This special Saturday evening concert will be held outdoors on the Clark Library’s East Lawn. Concert lottery winners are invited to picnic on the grounds prior to the concert and enjoy an open house to explore the historical spaces in the library and a few of our rare book and manuscript holdings.

The Clark Library and grounds will open at 3:30 p.m. for picnicking and the open house. Beverages and light snacks will be provided; please bring your own blanket and food. Alcohol is not permitted at this event. Please deposit waste and recyclables in appropriate containers.

Please be sure to dress appropriately for this outdoor event and bring adequate sun and bug protection. Some shade is provided by trees on the property but no tents or canopies will be provided.

No food or beverage is permitted inside the library. The library open house will be held from 3:30 p.m. until 4:50 p.m., and the library will be closed after the concert begins.

The concert will begin at 5:00 p.m. A limited number of chairs will be provided and guests may also be seated on the lawn on their own blankets.

All attendees must complete a pre-entry check to attend events. Everyone, including UCLA students, staff, faculty and non-affiliated visitors, must complete the UCLA COVID-19 Symptom Monitoring Survey prior to arrival and present their clearance certificate to event staff to gain entry. In accordance with updated UCLA Protocol for Organized Events, attendees are no longer permitted to show vaccination cards or proof of a negative test for entry.

Indoor masking is still required for those who are not up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations, which applies to everyone, including non-affiliate visitors. Upgraded, well-fitting masks are strongly recommended indoors for all, regardless of vaccination status.

Applauded by The Washington Post as “a perfect encapsulation of today’s trends in chamber music,” PUBLIQuartet’s creative, interactive programming presents contemporary works, original compositions, and improvisations expanding the role of the string quartet. In 2019 the group received their first Grammy nomination for their sophomore album, Freedom & Faith, cementing them as one of the premiere new music groups of our time.

PUBLIQuartet’s commitment to support emerging composers inspired their innovative program, “PUBLIQ Access,” which promotes emerging composers and presents a wide variety of under-represented music for string quartet–from classical, jazz and electronic, to non-notated, world, and improvised music. At least one of these works is showcased on virtually every program the Quartet performs, and they have regular showcase performances in New York to present the newest pieces in this growing catalogue.

PUBLIQuartet is sought after for its creative and energetic educational workshops. The Quartet’s mission to enrich and inspire students of diverse backgrounds has led them to hold residencies with American Composers Orchestra and Deer Valley Music Festival’s “Emerging Quartets and Composers” program, among others.
