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.
