In celebration of National Saxophone Day, student and faculty share why the 🎷 is their favorite instrument.

“I play the baritone saxophone because it feels right and like home in my hands, though I started on the smaller alto saxophone,” said Glynnis McNamara, fourth-year Global Jazz Studies major at UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music and member of the Undergraduate Student Advisory Board.

Jan Berry Baker, Associate Professor of Saxophone and Woodwind Area Head at the School of Music, reflected on the moment she embraced the saxophone once she was able to create a sound on it.

“It was truly the only instrument I could get to work on ‘instrument try out day’ in sixth grade,” said Professor Baker. “Once I started learning, appreciating and loving this chameleon like instrument, I began to discover my own musical voice. The range of colors, emotions and timbres that the saxophone is capable of expressing brings me inspiration and appreciation every day.”

Join Professor Baker today, 11/6 at 5 p.m. PST for a beautiful concert “From a Distance,” where she will be joined by the contemporary chamber music group Bent Frequency for its 2020-21 Season (Sustain) opener.

Happy Halloween 🎃! UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music Musicology lecturer, Morgan Fifield Woolsey (Ph.D. ‘18) shares why music is critical to directing an audience’s emotions in horror films, a genre that aims to deliver shocks and scares.

“What would the shark in Jaws be with without the accompanying motif? We can’t see the danger, so how can we be scared of it? The music lets us know it’s coming, and builds suspense. What would the shower scene in Psycho be without those high-pitched screeching violins? The virtuosic editing in that sequence is held together by the music,” said Woolsey.

“Our sense of hearing developed to locate, untangle, and interpret sonic information mind-bendingly fast, so a lot of hearing people experience sound and music as really immediate phenomena. The time between hearing something and reacting emotionally to it can feel non-existent to us, which is why music in film (and horror film in particular) is so visceral, feels like it goes ‘straight to the gut.’”

Woolsey will be featured on Eli Roth’s History of Horror on AMC where she will discuss this topic further. Tune in on Halloween Night at 10/9 p.m. CT!

In honor of World Opera Day, Peter Kazaras, @UCLAalpert’s Director of Opera UCLA, shares what opera means during these challenging times and its contribution to our society.

“Opera has always provided an opportunity for people from different walks of life to come together at one time in one place in order to dream together, to be excited, to be moved and to voice their own passion,” he said. “In our pandemic era, it is fascinating and even inspiring to see how opera is changing in order to meet the challenges of providing content despite the threat of illness. Many new scores are being composed, and creators are figuring out how to burst out of the confines of the Zoom format.”

He also notes how opera is empowering and foregrounding BIPOC artists and creators.

“Topics of new operas include racism, police violence, violence against women, prejudice against immigrants, urban gentrification and displacement, violence and discrimination against LGBTQ+ people, and other social justice topics that are part of mainstream discussions in today’s world. The operatic literature is exploding outwards in ways that will inevitably help confirm that opera is an essential art form in the music pantheon.”

“After all, the one essential instrument for any opera is the most expressive of all — the human voice.”

In recognition of National Hispanic Heritage Month, @UCLAalpert is proud to spotlight Sarah Yocute, a 4th year Global Jazz Studies student whose instrument of focus is her voice.

“As a first-generation Latina college student, there was so much pressure growing up from my community and early educators to chase after the ‘money-making’ careers,” said Sarah. “Because many of us grow up accustomed to financial insecurity, our dreams to pursue a career in the arts are often met with negative feedback and dismissed.”

Over time, Sarah has freed herself from societal expectations limiting her creativity or preconceived notions of the type of musician she should be. It is important to her that BIPOC youth know they have a place in higher education music programs and are provided the space and liberty to discover their authentic styles and sounds.

Coming from a culture that embraces community, hospitality, laughter and love, Sarah is constantly searching for these qualities in music.

“To be home with other artists who share the desire for a sense of family when creating music together is the most important and rewarding aspect of music for me. I have been fortunate enough to find this at UCLA with several people and performance ensembles that were willing to participate in this vulnerable type of music making. I know I will continue searching for this even after my time at UCLA.”

UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music has received a generous endowed gift of $4.05 million from the estate of emeriti professors Bernice Wenzel and Wendell “Jeff” Jeffrey, who were known for their longstanding commitment to UCLA.

The funds are part of a larger gift to UCLA to help advance the school’s goal of improving diversity, equity and inclusion, which will support undergraduate, transfer and graduate student scholarships in the Department of Music.

“Scholarships are of incredible importance as we welcome and support superlative students, regardless of their ability to fund their education,” said Dean Eileen Strempel. “We deeply appreciate Bernice Wenzel and Wendell Jeffrey’s generosity in making musical education more accessible for generations to come.”

In recognition of National Hispanic Heritage Month, @UCLAalpert is proud to spotlight Herman Chavez, a third-year transfer student majoring in Ethnomusicology and Comparative Literature. Herman is a first-generation American who shared how his identity has shaped his sense of place and belonging.

“As a Bolivian-American, my specific country often goes underrepresented in both the United States and in international conversations about art and culture,” said Herman. “I am a proud Boliviano and I carry my culture with me as a student and advocate at the School of Music.”

As the son of immigrants, his experience made him keen to the dissonance between his household and the majority of the U.S., guiding his curiosity on how aspects of migration and movement impact Latinx identity formation. His areas of research include: critical race studies, folkloric and Indigenous music, diaspora and migration, poetics and queerness in music, decolonial and post-colonial theory, and Latin American, Bolivian and Andean music.

Herman also sits on the Changing the Culture Subcommittee as part of the school’s Anti-Racism Action Committee, which strives to improve the academic atmosphere at the school for racialized students.
He has also been admitted to the Undergraduate Research Scholars Program where he is conducting research on Bolivian music with faculty mentor and musicology professor, Cesar Favila.

“In my time here, I hope to share the Bolivian and Andean identity in and out of musical spaces.”

Professor's concert series offers harmony in the discordant world of COVID-19 - Daily Bruin

Pianist Inna Faliks' livestream concert series, “Corona Fridays,” began mid-March as Faliks said she was seeking a way to challenge herself as a pianist and continue to perform live despite the cancellation of in-person performances. Faliks, the head of piano at the UCLA Herb Albert School of Music, said while she uses a prerecorded format often, she records her “Corona Fridays” sets in one fluid take as a way to maintain the authenticity of a live performance.

“This isn’t done to make something perfect and something glamorous,” Faliks said. “This is just an immediate way to connect and to share music (with) those who want to hear it. I’m very much a performer, and I can’t live without performing.”

For 22 Friday nights, professor Inna Faliks has set a commemorative roll of toilet paper on her piano for her “Corona Fridays” concert series. The roll of toilet paper accompanies sheet music, a setlist and poetry readings, resulting in a series of prerecorded videos posted virtually through Fac...

In recognition of National Hispanic Heritage Month, UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music is proud to spotlight Kim Mendez-McLeish who recently received their B.M. last spring and is currently a first year M.M. student in Voice Performance. Their abuelito (grandpa) came to the U.S. as an undocumented worker to provide their family with opportunities.

Music has always been a way for their family to bond. “To this day, anytime we get together, my dad will pull out his guitar and we will gather around to sing in harmony,” said Kim. “We sometimes even play gigs when I visit. My abuelita was always singing as she cooked or tended to her incredible backyard garden. She is the reason why I've always wanted to sing mariachi.”

In addition to studying western classical singing, Kim serves on the Culture of Academia subcommittee as part of the school's new Anti-Racism Action Committee. “Our focus is to address decolonizing the curriculum, and to create better and more abundant opportunities for BIPOC at The School of Music, in both faculty and student populations. I hope that we can change how and what we learn to incorporate the music and experience of BIPOC people and cultures.”

For Kim, being part of the Anti-Racism Action Committee provides an opportunity to shape change.

“I joined the Anti-Racism Action Committee because I was sick of feeling like I was doing nothing to combat the injustices built into our systems and institutions. I felt like it was a way for me to contribute, and hopefully make some lasting change for generations to come.”

Dear friends: I would love to share a paper I recently finished about STRAVINSKY'S music and Morse Code. This paper adds a new and different approach to Stravisnky's music and rhythm using the Morse Code as his secret rhythmic weapon. I am extremely thankful to #UCLA Musicology Professor @Elizabeth LeGuin for all her guidance and advice writing this paper. Also to maestro Aurelio de la Vega and Anne Marie Ketchum for their help and support. Check it out!
