Join us for a free performance of the UCLA Gluck Brass Quintet at the Los Angeles Public Library - Wilshire Branch! The brass quintet is a modern style of chamber ensemble that appeared in the mid-20th century and has roots in classical and folk chamber traditions from around the world. In its current configuration, the quintet was designed to allow the members of the brass family to explore their musical capabilities as a group, as well as shine individually as soloists. Coached by Jens Lindemann, a former member of the Canadian Brass, the UCLA Gluck Brass Quintet draws from repertoire new and old, from classical to jazz to pop.
Since 1996, the UCLA Gluck Fellows Music Outreach 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.
Each academic year, the School hand selects top-tier UCLA student performers to participate in the Gluck Fellows Music Outreach Program. Known as Gluck Fellows, these students perform in chamber ensembles or as solo artists, offering free educational performances across an immense diversity of musical styles.
