Composer readies for local show
The California Institute of Arts’ Herb Alpert School of Music is putting on a 21-musician-helmed ensemble led by famous composer Vinny Golia on Saturday.
Golia is a composer specializing in woodwind instruments who performs contemporary, jazz and free improvisation music around the world. He founded The Vinny Golia Large Ensemble in 1982, and is slated to perform 13 new original scores on Saturday.
The ensemble begins performing at 8 p.m. in the Roy O. Disney Concert Hall with a “random set,” according to a press release, that selects some of Golia’s works by chance to receive one live performance.
The concert also features a Halloweenthemed suite, and audience members dressed in costume will receive a surprise prize from Golia himself.
There is a planned reception for after the concert with food and alcohol for attendees. Admission is free.
The hall is located at 24700 McBean Parkway.
