First-year violin student Emily Taylor knew about UCLA’s annual Vivaldi at Powell concert long before she enrolled. “I went to Santa Monica High School,” she explained, “and I knew students who had graduated, gone to UCLA and played in the concert. It was a big deal.” Taylor left no doubt about its importance. “It’s a little nerve-wracking to know that I will be performing.”

Taylor and other first-year students will headline the Vivaldi at Powell concert on May 4, 8:00 p.m. in the rotunda of the Powell Library. The concert will feature a baroque music lineup, including the Four Seasons, as well as solo pieces written by Vivaldi, Telemann, and Popper. They will perform with their teachers, the world-class faculty of the Herb Alpert School of Music."
