Sharing the Music

Since 1996, the UCLA Gluck Fellows Program has been the beneficiary of a generous grant from the Max H. Gluck Foundation, which enables our finest UCLA music students to offer educational performances at over 150 schools, libraries, senior centers, and other nontraditional venues throughout Los Angeles County.

Free to all attendants, these performances allow communities otherwise denied the chance to hear live music to both develop and nurture a passion for music in all forms. While charting a path within the newly established UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, the Gluck Fellows Program continues its mission to enrich the lives of nearly 8,000 community members in need.

Throughout the academic year, the School hand selects top-tier UCLA student performers to participate in the Gluck Fellows Program. Known as Gluck Fellows, these students perform in chamber ensembles or as solo artists, offering educational performances across an immense diversity of musical styles.

Gluck Fellows Music Ensembles vary each year, but may range from piano soloists to opera singers, string quartets to jazz combos, and world music groups to brass quintets. Fellows have a unique opportunity to receive financial aid for their community contributions, furthering their musical and professional development through hands-on workshops, master classes, and numerous concert engagements.
