Fay Victor Residency: Masterclass

Nov 15 Fri
Fay Victor Residency: Masterclass
Band Room – Room 1345 – Schoenberg Music Building

Fay Victor, an improvising vocalist, composer, lyricist, and educator, will lead a masterclass/open rehearsal with UCLA students who will perform in concert with her on November 16, 2019. This event is open to the public.

Called “artistically complete” (New York Times), vocalist/composer Fay Victor hones a unique vision for vocalists’ role in jazz and improvised music. Victor has released nine critically acclaimed recordings as leader and has performed with musicians such as Randy Weston, Roswell Rudd, Nicole Mitchell, and Archie Shepp, to name but a few. Her most recent release with her SoundNoiseFUNK project is Wet Robots (ESP Disk, July 2018). Performance highlights include those at The Museum of Modern Art (New York), Hammer Museum (Los Angeles), Kölner Philharmonie (Germany), De Young Museum (San Francisco), Symphony Space (New York), and Bimhuis (Netherlands). Victor was the 2017 Herb Albert/Yaddo Fellow in Music Composition, and she is also a 2010 MusicOmi Fellow. In October 2019, she will be a featured artist in the Jason Moran Performances at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. She is currently on the faculty at the New School of Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York City.
