As the school year gets underway, things are hopping at the Colburn School in Downtown LA. The school educates a multitude of students, from the youngsters and teenagers in the Community School of Performing Arts and the Music Academy, to the college level musicians in the Colburn Conservatory. Colburn offers an extensive schedule of public performances and in October they take note of Beethoven’s upcoming 250th birthday. Alan Chapman talked with the President and CEO of the school, Sel Kardan, about those performances and their importance to a growing institution.
From the Central Coast to San Diego, from Santa Monica to Palm Springs, there are fascinating people creating incredible art and performances. KUSC will be covering those experiences on Arts Alive. And when you’re in the mood for a little more, like a longer version of an interview, more Arts Alive coverage is available online at kusc.org/artsalive.
