Still Waiting Speaker Series
The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music and its Inaugural Dean, Eileen L. Strempel are proud to launch Still Waiting, a new speaker series that invites the public to join UCLA students in conversation with prominent figures invited by the school’s Anti-Racism Action Committee (ARAC), to help us understand ourselves and our response to this deeply hurtful moment in our nation’s racial reckoning. Still Waiting invites us to demand better of our communities and better of our actions in response to the tangible effects of racist policing, academic and institutional indifference, and methodologies that may bridge the gap between feelings of alienation and feelings of sanctuary and refuge for us all.
The MET Orchestra is continuing its free Masterclass Series, with applications now open for Percussion, Tuba, English Horn, and Violin, including a special class with our Concertmaster David Chan.
As always, we would be delighted to have applicants and interested viewers from the AYS community.
