Philip Graulty - Won't You Help To Sing? (Full Album - Official Video)

⭐️ Alumni Spotlight ⭐️

Congratulations to UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music alumnus Philip Graulty M.M. ’05 on the release of his debut solo EP, “Won’t You Help To Sing?”

Graulty’s work was created in response to the murder of George Floyd and is a collection of hymns and protest songs serving as a call to action against racial injustice. The second piece titled “Breathe” is an original composition dedicated to the memory of George Floyd.

“The suite’s title is borrowed from the chorus to Marley’s anthem,” said Graulty. “The question it poses is an invitation for us to not only sing these songs of freedom, but to embody their messages through our actions. Won’t you help to sing?”

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!
