2018 is getting off to a fast start! We're honored to be joined by Michael Abels, composer of the Oscar-nominated film Get Out. Michael will speak about his incredible career highlights and what led him to scoring the 2017 colossal hit (his first film score). Find out the challenges he had with scoring a film that transcends and combines many genres.

Our score study will focus on Leonard Bernstein's Overture to Candide. This is the Bernstein centenary, and the LA Opera is currently performing a run of Candide starring Kelsey Grammer and Christine Ebersole over the next two weeks. This vibrant piece is bursting with character and contains many important techniques for your toolbox!

Get your ticket now and see you on February 10th!
