The Tune In Festival
11/6/21, 2:00 AM
The return of The Tune In Festival will feature more than 30 artists and ensembles over four days, coming together to pay respect to the time-honored tradition of music and poetry as sources of resilience, protest and inspiration. Curated by performance poet J. Ivy and pianist Lisa Kaplan in close collaboration with CAP UCLA Creative Advisor Kristy Edmunds.
For the festival, Jennifer created a music flm for experimental violin duo The Furies. Confronting humanity's impact on the climate and our place in the universe, The Furies's piece for the Tune In Festival is a meditation on the arc of history, from the primal dawn of civilization to an uncertain future.
Day 2: Friday, November 5 at 7PM PT
Eighth Blackbird: Singing in the Dead of Night by Julia Wolfe
The Furies: Did He Promise You Tomorrow

Ballad of the Star-Eater: the Music of Johanna Beyer
Time & Location
Southland Ensemble presents a concert of the music of pioneering American composer Johanna Magdalena Beyer.
Johanna Beyer (1888-1944) was a German-American composer and pianist. She died of Lou Gehrig's disease and the majority of her work would have been forgotten were it not for the endeavors of composers and performers, notably Frog Peak, who brought her music back to life, as it were, through research and volunteer score copying.
Many of Beyer's works were never performed in her lifetime. Several of these works, including String Quartet IV and Movement for String Quartet are possible premieres, as there is little documentation of the performance of her work.
String Quartet IV
String Quartet #2
Movement for Double Bass and Piano
