One of the world’s greatest string quartets...”

—The New York Times

Concert Classics Series

About the Event

We finally return to the concert hall after an almost two-year pandemic hiatus! To mark this special occasion, “one of the world’s greatest string quartets” (The New York Times) returns for their 22nd appearance on our series with a fellow familiar face—dazzling accordionist and bandoneón virtuoso Julien Labro. Together, they herald the next chapter in Princeton University Concerts’ 129-year history with new works by Brazilian-American composer Clarice Assad and Grammy-winner (and The National rock band guitarist!) Bryce Dessner. Both compositions were co-commissioned by PUC as part of the Music Accord consortium of 11 presenters nationwide.

PLEASE NOTE: All attendees will be required to show photo ID and proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to the maximum extent, which now includes a booster shot for all eligible to receive it. Please read our COVID-19 policies in advance of attendance.
