Mark O’Connor visits UCLA

October 21, 2008

I’ve finally shaken off the nasty flu that has kept me grounded for the past week. Today in my theory class, violinst/fiddler Mark O’Connor will be visiting us to talk about his life as a musician. He is our School’s first Artist-in-residence and is in many ways a symbol of the kind of musician we are adding to our career models for students — someone who straddles popular and classical musics.

Here is James Taylor, Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer and Mark O’Connor playing the classic Stephen Foster tune “Hard Times.”
