UCLA has received $5.2 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to help repair the campus' landmark Royce Hall, bringing the total amount of federal aid for the earthquake-damaged building to $37 million. In a conference call with UCLA Chancellor Charles Young on Tuesday, Vice President Al Gore announced the grant to help pay for rebuilding the well-known brick and terra cotta structure, whose towers were cracked during the 1994 Northridge quake.

For the first time in its 65 years as UCLA's showplace auditorium, people are hoping that the latest Royce Hall production does not bring down the house. This one is no classical ballet or New Age jazz concert or high-brow stage show, however. It's a mock magnitude 4 earthquake designed to show structural engineers where emergency seismic repairs and retrofitting are needed most at the Romanesque performance hall.

Royce Hall. Modeled after a church, named for a philosopher. You reach it via brick walkways and tiled terraces, through sculpture gardens and sleek lawns. No matter which route you take or what other buildings you pass along the way, when you reach Royce Hall, the feeling is, "Of course." Of course it's here, at UCLA's heart. Shelter. Asylum. One of the university's original four buildings, the hall was built on a sheep pasture, long since given way to an elegant quad.

The Borodin Trio presented a long, demanding program with its customary skill in Royce Hall at UCLA on Sunday afternoon. But 50 minutes of the Herz-Schmerz Tchaikovsky A-minor Trio, preceding (after a faintly vivifying intermission) the Angst- laden half-hour of Shostakovich's Trio in E minor proved nearly stupefying.

Malian music is in the news today for the most awful reasons, as religious fundamentalist rebels have banned it in much of the country. That makes this set by Vieux Farka Touré, the scion of the great Malian music family, all the more urgent — his work pairs the soulful guitar work of his father, Ali Farka Touré, with modern production flourishes. Royce Hall, UCLA. 8 p.m. Fri. $20-$50. cap.ucla.edu.
