Chamber Music at the Clark is one of the city’s notable, if lesser-known, live music programs. Organized by the UCLA Center for 17th and 18th Century Studies, the series is distinguished by the excellence of its musical talent and the unique venue that hosts its concerts; namely, the ornate drawing room of the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library.
This December, the Clark will showcase the talent of versatile American violinist Rachel Barton Pine. A Chicago native, Pine has appeared as soloist with many of the world’s most prestigious orchestras under conductors such as Charles Dutoit, Zubin Mehta, Neeme Järvi, Marin Alsop, Semyon Bychkov, Plácido Domingo and José Serebrier. She is also known for her active recording career and performed on sixteen critically acclaimed albums for the Cedille, Dorian, and Cacophony labels. The Washington Post describes her as, “An exciting, boundary-defying performer.”
