Event Details

The Wild Beast Concert Series

 

California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) is pleased to announce the spring 2013 events of The Wild Beast Concert Series hosted by the Herb Alpert School of Music at CalArts. In April, two free concerts will feature world-class guest performers, faculty, alumni and students representing the Institute’s acclaimed Jazz and World Music Programs.  On April 13, the incendiary sounds of the CalArts Jazz Big Band will rock the Wild Beast. A night of African Dancing and Drumming on April 27 will highlight one of the most exciting programs of CalArts’ annual World Music Festival. 

 

The Herb Alpert School of Music at CalArts offers rigorous training in an unrivaled variety of musical styles and cultures—and The Wild Beast Concert Series offers audiences the opportunity to experience the Institute’s vibrant musical culture. 

 

Designed by Hodgetts + Fung, The Wild Beast music pavilion has been dubbed a “mini Hollywood Bowl” for its delightful outdoor amphitheater setting. With open lawn seating, families are welcome and picnics encouraged at Valencia’s most intimate concert venue. A half hour north of downtown Los Angeles, CalArts is located just off the McBean Parkway exit of Interstate Highway 5 in Valencia, California.
