Contemporary Music




Course Information:
Music C175/485

Director: Gloria Cheng

uclaFLUX is devoted to the performance of chamber music from the 20th and 21st centuries. We explore and embrace new performance approaches and techniques associated with the dynamic, ever-evolving languages of contemporary music. In preparing to perform and produce quarterly concerts, students learn innovative modes of expression, interact directly with composers, and develop skills in concert promotion, production, and entrepreneurship. Repertoire is chosen according to enrollment, though pre-formed groupings are welcomed. Interested students must be in attendance on Day One, when instrumentalists, singers, and conductors are invited to audition.
