Los Angeles Public Library – Westchester-Loyola Branch

Join us for a free performance of the UCLA Gluck Near East Ensemble at the Los Angeles Public Library Westchester-Loyola Branch!

The UCLA Gluck Near East Ensemble performs music of the Arab world, North Africa, Turkey, Central Asia, and parts of Eastern Europe. Their extensive repertoire features various instrumental and vocal genres that combine traditional and contemporary elements while using a variety of Western and non-Western musical instruments. This trio is dedicated to enriching Los Angeles audiences through performance and education about musical cultures of the Near East.

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.

Test Kitchen: Decolonize Music Theory through Multi-Sensory Writing with Nina Eidsheim and Juliette Bellocq
What if we listened to music with our tongue, feet, or skin? In this interactive event, we will experiment with multi-sensory experience of music. Engaging with a writing model from PEER Lab graphic designer Julliet Bellocq and founder Nina Eidsheim can help us relate to our senses more fully, and deepen our relationship with music and ourselves.
