Founded in 2010, the GRAMMY nominated PUBLIQuartet’s modern interpretation of chamber music makes them one of the most dynamic artists of their generation. 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.  PUBLIQuartet has served as artist-in-residence at top institutions including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and National Sawdust and has appeared at a wide variety of venues and festivals, from Carnegie Hall and the Newport Jazz Festival to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Their latest album, Freedom and Faith, debuted atop the Billboard Classical Charts in May 2019. PUBLIQuartet’s commitment to supporting emerging composers inspired their innovative program, PUBLIQ Access, which promotes emerging composers and presents a wide variety of under-represented music for string quartet--from classical, jazz and electronic, to non-notated, world and improvised music. Other unique projects include MIND|THE|GAP, a series of group-composed works developed by PQ to generate interest in new music while also engaging traditional classical music audiences. 

Hailed in the New York Times as “one of the best deals in town for lovers of classical music,” for more than six decades, The New School’s Schneider Concerts series has presented outstanding young artists and ensembles at non-exclusionary ticket prices. The series’ remarkable history that includes the New York debuts of pianist Peter Serkin and the Guarneri, Cleveland, Vermeer, and Johannes String Quartets and TASHI. Artists such as Yefim Bronfman, Richard Goode, Jaime Laredo, Yo-Yo Ma, and Murray Perahia were introduced to New York audiences early in their careers. More recently, the series has presented the New York debuts of the Dover, Calidore, and Calder string quartets.  Today, New York audiences still need outstanding, accessible, affordable, and adventurous concerts as much as they did in 1957 when this series was founded, and the Schneider Concerts continues its tradition of excellence.

The Schneider Concerts ONLINE | 2020-2021 season is supported by the Alexander Schneider Foundation and with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
