The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music
Schoenberg Music Building (Schoenberg Hall)
Reading of student compositions by the Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble (MCME).
MCME has strong educational goals and works closely with both Russian and international cultural foundations to bring contemporary music to a wide range of audiences. As part of this goal, MCME has organized the annual fortnight International Young Composers Academy (Tchaikovsky City, Ural) to bring together both young composers and internationally recognized composers in workshops.
Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble (MCME) was founded in 1990 by Yuri Kasparov, under the patronage of the famous Russian composer Edison Denisov. The ensemble focuses on promoting 20th and 21st century music and is Russia’s foremost contemporary chamber ensemble, comprised of some of the best Russian musicians specializing in modern music.
Following this event, MCME will be performed new compositions by UCLA Composition faculty and students, and by international composers in the Ostin Ensemble Room on Sunday, March 4 at Noon.
