Join us for a free performance of the UCLA Gluck Reed Quintet at the Los Angeles Public Library Vernon Branch!
The UCLA Gluck Reed Quintet was founded in 2018 and comprises both graduate and undergraduate music performance majors. The combination of oboe, clarinet, bass clarinet, saxophone, and bassoon is a fairly new concept, and proves to be a stellar blend of timbres with the ability to perform music across many genres. The Reed Quintet presents the music of composers ranging from J. S. Bach to George Gershwin. Under the direction of an internationally-acclaimed woodwind faculty at the Herb Alpert School of Music, the Gluck Reed Quintet educates and entertains audiences throughout Los Angeles with an array of music, from unique instrumental arrangements to original compositions.
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.
