From the UCLA website:
In this concert, discover how something old can be reinterpreted and re-imagined as Michel Klein, composer and UCLA PhD Candidate, curates a concert of Jewish concert works, all composed in the last few decades. Featuring both professional musicians and students from UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, it will have you re-think the concept of Jewish music. Sometimes tradition is best, and sometimes something completely different is better. This concert also marks the beginning of the Shir Chadash Concert Series, a new series of concerts solely dedicated to new Jewish works. This event is made possible by the Lowell Milken Fund for American Jewish Music at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music. It is co-sponsored by The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music.
