The Lauren V. Ackerman Memorial Chamber Concert was endowed by Dr. Ackerman’s family as a tribute to his memory and a continuing reminder of the arts that he cherished. Beginning in 2010, the Department of Music established a competition for the purposes of identifying a particularly worthy group to receive a prize and to perform at this concert.  This year's Ackerman competition winners are the Nexus Piano Quartet (Brian Bak, Andrew Minguez, Phuc Phan Do, and Shir Semmel.) Works to be performed include Mozart Piano Quartet in G minor, K. 478, Schumann Piano Quartet in E-flat Major, op. 47, and Mozart Piano Quartet in E-flat Major, K. 493.
