DAVID KRAKAUER residency at UCLA
DAVID KRAKAUER residency
at UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music
ALL events are FREE and open to the public!
The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music is thrilled to welcome back the legendary klezmer clarinetist extraordinaire and 2013-2014 UCLA Regents' Lecturer David Krakauer from May 20-22, 2014!
In December (2013), David spent a week at UCLA working with the UCLA Philharmonia, Chorale, and University Chorus on a special recording project (now released on Naxos) which culminated in a live performance at Royce Hall on December 5th. Along with others such as composer Mohammed Fairouz and soprano soloist Sasha Cooke, David filled an integral role in the events of December 2-8 ("Listening to the Other: Mideast Musical Dialogues").
Returning in less than two weeks, David will be working closely with students from the UCLA Jazz Department and the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz to prepare an unique concert of original music with influences of jazz, funk, and electronica. David will also be offering a lecture about his (very) unique career complete with klezmatic demonstrations; as well as a more informal Q&A session to provide an opportunity for students, faculty, and anyone else interested to open a dialogue on any lingering areas of curiosity or interest. Details regarding these events are as follows:
May 20. 3-5pm. UCLA. Schoenberg Music Building, room 1343.
LECTURE/DEMONSTRATION. Come hear David discuss his unique career and how he came to be who he is today.
