KUSC’s partnering with the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation to collect instruments for deserving kids. We talk to the foundation’s CEO about their mission and how they decide which instruments go where. And Soprano Golda Berkman saw her first opera at age 4. Now she’s striking out for Italy to continue her operatic education, but not before one last hometown concert. Plus film critic Kenneth Turan on an island full of monsters. And on Ask the Dean, does learning a piece of music make an imprint in your brain? It’s all on the Arts Alive podcast.
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.
