The members of PUBLIQuartet — whose diverse tastes span classical jazz, improvisation, and world music — play their instruments with a passion for showing audiences something new. With technical mastery and freewheeling joy, the young string players have appeared everywhere from Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where they performed a 90-minute improvised soundtrack to a live presidential debate.
The genre-bending foursome is committed to supporting emerging composers, amplifying marginalized voices, and drawing attention to today’s issues. Their programs feature a wide variety, from 20th-century masterworks to newly commissioned pieces. Audiences especially love PUBLIQuartet’s MIND|THE|GAP series of re-imaginations of classical themes where the musicians’ skills are featured in open-form improvisations.
Save your seat and hear the future of chamber music take shape in front of your ears.
