UCLA Symphony’s Spring Quarter concert features six works, four student soloists, and six student conductors! Highlights include John Williams’ “Escapades,” a natty work for alto saxophone and orchestra with music taken from the Spielberg film, “Catch Me If You Can,” and a UCLA favorite, Gershwin’s overture to the Broadway show, “Strike Up the Band.” UCLA's campus-wide orchestra, UCLA Symphony draws its membership from across the university community, bringing together talented undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff, and affiliates.

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.
