Our second MUSIC SECTION gathering of the UCLA's Faculty Women's Club was held November 19, 2014. We first watched Michael Tilson Thomas' The American Sound which pondered questions such as "Why does it sound American," and "What are the elements that have characteristically participated in the formation of American Sound." We heard excerpts from jazz, American folk music, Jewish and Russian traditions, the music of Mexico, and the hot beats from the streets of Brooklyn. MTT took us to Aaron Copland himself, his residence, his own words about Chavez, Graham, Bernstein.

In the context of Spanish inspired rhythms, arias, and dances, please join us at the UCLA's James Bridges Theater for The Metropolitan Opera (MetOperaHD), Sunday December 21st at 2 PM. We will be enjoying Rossini's Il Barbiere di Siviglia.
