The young LA-based composer Julia Adolphe is having a moment. Well…let’s call it four years, and counting. Multiple commissions from the New York Philharmonic, from LACO, and from the LA Phil, which premiered her latest score to open its centennial season. But Adolphe had an early start. She began composing at nine. Julia Adolphe visited the KUSC studios to discuss her beloved late mentor Steven Stucky, moving to Los Angeles, and more.
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.
