Join the UCLA Brass Ensemble and special guest pianists, professor James Lent and alumna Alexa Constantine, for an evening of diverse works ranging from contemporary to classical. The program includes work by Richard Strauss, Gustav Holst, and an audience favorite, Carnival of the Animals, by Camille Saint-Saëns. Conducted by D.M.A candidate Shaun Evans.
The Brass Ensemble focuses on performance experience and provides opportunities for conductors who are graduate teaching assistants in the conducting program. The ensemble and student conductors are mentored and coached by professor and award-winning trumpeter Jens Lindemann.
Made possible by the David and Irmgard Dobrow Fund. Classical music was a passion of the Dobrows, who established a generous endowment at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music to make programs like this possible. We are proud to celebrate this program as part of the 2018-2019 Dobrow Series.
