This concert is part of the INTERPLAY Festival of arts and ideas, presented by Chapman University and Pacific Symphony, in association with Chapman University's College of Performing Arts and the Hilbert Museum of California Art. 

Enjoy a FREE chamber music concert by a string quartet from Pacific Symphony along with a Chapman cello ensemble, led by cellist Laszlo Mezo, lecturer at Chapman University and member of Pacific Symphony.  What better way to enjoy great music than in a venue surrounded by fine art by many of California's most noted artists?  FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Seating is limited and will be first-come, first-served. Limited standing room in the back. California wine and cheese reception to follow the performance.

The Hilbert Museum of California Art at Chapman University, which opened in 2016, was founded thanks to the generosity of founders Mark and Janet Hilbert. The Hilbert Collection – which includes oils, watercolors, sketches and lithographs of urban and industrial scenes, coastal views, farms, ranches and landscapes of everyday life – is a significant repository of images of the 20th century by California artists, celebrating the unique artistic and cultural development of the Golden State. 

The program features a number of composers (George Antheil, Lou Harrison & Terry Riley) who were writing music in California around the time of the art works being shown in the exhibit.
