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

Soundwaves: Daniel Corral
Time & Location
The Soundwaves new music series at the Santa Monica Public Library marks its 50th event with the world premiere of "Unknown Summits," a major work by acclaimed L.A. composer Daniel Corral, on Wednesday March 20, 2019, at 7:30pm in the Main Library Martin Luther King Jr. Auditorium, at 601 Santa Monica Blvd.
"Unknown Summits" is a song cycle based on texts from summit logs found in the Sierra Club archives. Summit logs are guest books kept at mountaintops for climbers to record their accomplishments and reflections. Corral was especially drawn to books whose original locations are no longer known, thus "Unknown Summits."
His settings of these texts will be brought to life by vocalist Joanna Wallfisch, who has toured with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and now teaches on L.A's Skid Row with the Urban Voices Project, joined by the Koan Quartet (Eric KM Clark and Orin Hildestad, violins, Cassia Streb, viola, and Jennifer Bewerse, cello) and Corral on accordion.
