Made possible by the David and Irmgard Dobrow Fund
Classical music was a passion of Drs. David and Irmgard Dobrow, 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 2016-2017 Dobrow Series.
