There are string quartets, and then there’s the PUBLIQuartet. This fearless foursome breaks down the barriers of classical music, incorporating improvisation and group composition into their acclaimed performances.
Inspired by the group's GRAMMY-nominated album Freedom and Faith, this program celebrates women composers through the ages and explores ideas of spirituality, resilience, and inspiration. Composers include Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, Jessie Montgomery, Hildegard von Bingen, and original MIND THE GAP compositions by PUBLIQuartet.
A meditation on the extraordinary music of six women through the centuries, and a reflection on the intersection of faith, vision, and the unquenchable creative spirit.

Applauded by The Washington Post as “a perfect encapsulation of today’s trends in chamber music,” and by The New Yorker as “independent-minded,” the GRAMMY nominated PUBLIQuartet’s modern interpretation of chamber music makes them one of the most dynamic artists of their generation. Dedicated to presenting new works for string quartet, PUBLIQuartet rose on the music scene as winner of the 2013 Concert Artists Guild’s New Music/New Places award, and in 2019 garnered Chamber Music America’s prestigious Visionary Award for outstanding and innovative approaches to contemporary classical, jazz, and world chamber music. PQ’s genre-bending programs range from 20th century masterworks to newly commissioned pieces, alongside re-imaginations of classical works featuring open-form improvisations that expand the techniques and aesthetic of the traditional string quartet.
