Being at UCLA, the only problem is to make choices between performances, artists, and amazing venues we have around us.
On Sunday April 23 at 4-6 PM, The UCLA Alpert School of Music presented "A Poet's Cabaret," at Schoenberg Hall. Jack Perla was the featured composer and pianist, with an amazing group of UCLA opera and voice students. In addition, Jeffrey Ho performed Perla's (2010) beautiful sonatina, "Wait Here" in 4 movements (with some improv) accompanied by Mr. Perla. "Betty Box Office (2008) was performed by talented Julia Stuart, Thomas Hollow, and Christopher Hunter.

To prep for the concert, you may want to hear Shostakovich's works at NPR:
May 17th at 12:30 AM is reserved for the vocal performance of our own Shirley Ho at her residence in Brentwood. Directions will be given by Shirley. We will need two volunteers of that Music Section event.
Fowler Musem, photo below, is truly one among UCLA's many treasure; currently, it is featuring Indian jewelry, African print fashion, spectacular masquerade from Sierra Leone, as well as lectures, regional music ensembles, and affordable items in their gift shop.
