Chamber Music at the Clark

An annual series established in 1994, Chamber Music at the Clark presents internationally acclaimed ensembles and soloists in the drawing room of the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library. The series, which usually hosts seven concerts each year, honors the musical passion of William Andrews Clark Jr., an accomplished violinist and founder of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

2022–23 Season-Chamber Music at the Clark

For the 2022–23 season, we are delighted to present concerts by the Parker Quartet, pianist Markus Groh, the Los Angeles Piano Trio, the Cuarteto Casals, the Telegraph Quartet (with soprano Abigail Fischer), violinist Augustin Hadelich, and the Balourdet Quaret.  Please scroll down for dates, ticket information, and links to program details.

Henry J. Bruman Summer Chamber Music Festival

This annual festival was founded in 1988 by Professor Henry J. Bruman (1913–2005), who sought to introduce new audiences to chamber music at informal concerts on the UCLA campus. Each summer, we present 4–5 free lunchtime concerts featuring acclaimed local musicians, including former UCLA music students.  In recent years, the concerts have been held in the Powell Library Rotunda.

The festival is made possible by the Henry J. Bruman Chamber Music Series Fund, the Jeffrey Family Trust (established by the late Professors Wendell E. Jeffrey and Bernice M. Wenzel), by a gift in memory of Raymond E. Johnson, and with support from the UCLA Center for 17th- & 18th-Century Studies and Powell Library. Past seasons can be viewed below.

Chamber Music at the Clark is made possible by The Ahmanson Foundation; The Colburn Foundation; Martha Bardach; Catherine Glynn Benkaim, Ph.D. and Barbara Timmer; Dr. Rogers Brubaker; Patricia N. Chock; Dr. Susan Harris and Mark Harris; Judy Hellinger; Henry J. Bruman Endowment for Chamber Music; Dr. Sheldon H.
