Concert Program

*subject to change

January 29, 2015, 7:30pm, UCLA Schoenberg Concert Hall

The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music invites you to a concert that brings talents from all its Departments—the Departments of Ethnomusicology, Music, and Musicology—as well as The Thelonius Monk Institute of Jazz Performance. We are also especially honored to collaborate with the UCLA Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance Program faculty. This concert kicks off the symposium Voice Studies Now—a series of talks and discussions in which a transdisciplinary group of voice scholars will present and discuss work that will be published in the Oxford Handbook of Voice Studies. Please join us for these talks on Friday-Saturday, January 30-31.
