The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music and UCLA Alan D. Leve Center for Jewish Studies will present the world premiere of “David’s Quilt,” an original libretto about biblical King David“.

This performance features the premiere of a new work by Los Angeles based composers and UCLA faculty and students working together with the Max Helfman Institute. David's Quilt is the result of 15 very different composers joining together to tell the story of David through their own artistic lens. The Quilt explores different episodes of David's life, composed in a variety of musical idioms. 


The concert is the kick-off performance to the "American Culture and the Jewish Experience in Music,” a two-day conference exploring the influence that Jewish customs, values and beliefs have had on American music and the growth of music for Jews in America.
