A Brass Quartet: a free concert!

Crowell Public Library

1890 Huntington Drive, CA, CA 91108

7:00pm to 8:00pm

Come to Crowell Library for a night of fabulous music from the Brass Quartet led by San Marino Music Center instructor, Kory McMaster. The program will feature both classical and modern works, from Bach to Holst and even film scores such as "How to Train Your Dragon." The San Marino Brass Quartet consists of Kory McMaster and Michelle Lane on trumpets, Nolan Markey on French horn, and Julius Lopez on trombone. The concert will delight audience members of all ages. The concert is sponsored by the San Marino Music Center and the Friends of Crowell Public Library. No reservations are necessary, but seating is limited for this very popular series.

Kory McMaster is a freelance musician, film composer, and orchestrator. He graduated with a B.M. in Music Composition from Azusa Pacific University where he studied with renowned trumpet instructor Robert Slack. Kory currently works as an orchestrator at Sparks and Shadows under television composer Bear McCreary working on shows such as The Walking Dead, Da Vinci’s Demons, and Marvel’s Agents of Shield. Kory is incredibly passionate about teaching, striving to provide his students with the same opportunities that his instructors provided for him.

Michelle Lane (trumpet) has toured much of the US and currently plays in the house band for the late night talk show “Noches Con Plantanito.” Michelle has performed at Elvis Presley’s Graceland, the Jonathan Club in Los Angeles, Monterey Next Generation Jazz Festival, and the Grove and Americana in Los Angeles. She also studied with Robert Slack at Azusa Pacific University where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in commercial trumpet performance and was offered a full scholarship from Azusa Pacific to pursue a Master’s Degree. Michelle also teaches master classes at various high schools.

Nolan Markey (French horn) began studying piano at the age of five, but was absolutely terrible at it and decided to pursue trumpet instead. Later he added French horn to his musical palette and has been playing ever since. Nolan is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Film Music Composition at California State University, Northridge and frequently works as a copyist and composer. For the last several years, he has served as the staff brass instructor at Pete Knight High School in Palmdale, California.
Julius Lopez began playing trombone in ninth grade. He was a nursing student at Cal State Fullerton, but was coaxed by Robert Slack to attend Citrus College and pursue music. He eventually graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Music from Azusa Pacific University. As a trombonist Julius has performed throughout the United States. He has played at venues such as the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Catalina Jazz Club, Newport Jazz Festival, and has backed up artists such as Rob Reiner, Sammy Nestico, Marc Shaiman, Scott Whitfield, and Dale Kristien.

Australian Ballet - Swan Lake

Dorothy Chandler Pavilion at the Music Center

135 N. Grand Ave, Los Angeles, 90012

7:30pm to 2:00pm

Australian Ballet – Swan Lake

With live orchestra

The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

October 9-12th 2014

 

Swan Lake, one of the most beloved and recognized ballets of all time, comes to Los Angeles this October with a new production from The Australian Ballet. Set to Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s immortal score, and performed by live orchestra, Graeme Murphy’s Swan Lake captures the passion, romance and magic of the classic ballet in a way that’s both refreshingly original and reverently classical.

This engagement of Swan Lake has a special significance to Los Angeles as well. In 1966 — barely a year after the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion opened — The Music Center presented Rudolf Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn with The Australian Ballet on the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion stage. Now, in celebration of The Music Center’s 50th Anniversary, Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at The Music Center is thrilled to bring back the legendary dance company with their critically acclaimed re-imagining of the classical ballet Swan Lake.
