Event Description

“…perhaps the most important jazz composer of his generation.” – The New York Times

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 2016 for his album In for a Penny, In for a Pound, Henry Threadgill’s work combines African, African American, and other world traditions in what can truly be considered “world music.” He is also a saxophonist and flutist who has fronted eclectic ensembles over the years. The composer will discuss his music and career with Distinguished Professor James Newton. Audience Q&A follows the conversation.

The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music aspires to educate the whole student through productive collaborations between performance and scholarship, a cross-cultural, global understanding of the art of music, and preparatory training for a broad range of careers in music after graduation.
