It’s a big moment for eight of The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music’s finest classical musicians. Selected as winners of the 14th annual All-Star Competition by outside adjudicators, these students win the rare opportunity to perform as soloists with the UCLA Philharmonia, the School’s flagship orchestra and one of Southern California’s premier training orchestras. Performing as a soloist with orchestra is a peak musical experience. Soloists have the opportunity to stand out, to interpret the music their way.

Made possible by the David and Irmgard Dobrow Fund. Classical music was a passion of the Dobrows, who established a generous endowment at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music to make programs like this possible. We are proud to celebrate this program as part of the 2017-2018 Dobrow Series.
