Music Alive represents a collection of artful recording projects by Global Jazz Studies combo (Michele Weir, director) with student guest artists, plus special mentoring sessions from music and recording professionals. The soulful directive of this special combo involves stretching the boundaries of standard practices for the live music ensemble, exploiting contemporary technology, and finding inventive solutions for artistic expression during these unusual times. Each student is responsible to conceive, design, arrange, record and mix their own recording project. A virtual concert presentation of all recordings will be premiered on June 2, 7:00 pm.
This event is made possible thanks to support from The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music’s Office of the Dean.
