Free Lunch-Hour Chamber Music Concerts at UCLA

The UCLA Center for 17th- & 18th-Century Studies is once again co-sponsoring the Henry J. Bruman Summer Chamber Music Festival. Held over a two-week period beginning next week, the festival will feature members of the iPalpiti Soloists and the Armadillo String Quartet in four free concerts at UCLA. 

Founded in 1997 by the late Henry J. Bruman, a UCLA geography professor, the festival is dedicated to bringing this much loved musical form to the campus community and beyond. As in years past, the 2012 program is characterized by a diverse group of composers whose music will be played by a highly talented group of musicians from Los Angeles and other cities around the world.
