Join us for a free performance of the UCLA Gluck Vocal Ensemble at the Los Angeles Public Library Will & Ariel Durant Branch!
The UCLA Gluck Vocal Ensemble is made up of vocal performance students and a piano performance student at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music. The performers work to learn, study, and memorize music from genres like Baroque and classical to Broadway and cabaret. The music they learn is fitted to their voice type–soprano, mezzo soprano, tenor, or bass. The first half of their performance consists of more classical repertoire by composers such as Mozart, Strauss, and Tosti. The second half features more musical theater repertoire, with pieces by composers such as Bernstein and Sondheim.
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.
