This year's annual Steven Blier Covel Residency features "The Rodgers Family” recital with students performing the music of Rodgers and Hart, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Mary Rodgers and Adam Guettel. The recital is curated by Steven Blier, Artistic Director of New York Festival of Song (NYFOS).

Steven Blier is the Artistic Director of the New York Festival of Song (NYFOS), which he co-founded in 1988 with Michael Barrett. Since the Festival’s inception, he has programmed, performed, translated and annotated more than 140 vocal recitals with repertoire spanning the entire range of American song, art song from Schubert to Szymanowski, and popular song from early vaudeville to Lennon-McCartney. NYFOS has also made in-depth explorations of music from Spain, Latin America, Scandinavia and Russia. New York Magazine gave NYFOS its award for Best Classical Programming, while Opera News proclaimed Blier “the coolest dude in town.”

Parking for Popper Theater is in Structure 2

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 2016-2017 Dobrow Series.
