First Wild Beast Concert of the season to feature two CalArts alumni bands
California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) will celebrate the end of its busy open house weekend with a live performance from two 21st century jazz bands led by CalArts alumni Lauren Elizabeth Baba and Daniel Rosenboom.
The Oct. 14 performance at the Wild Beast Music Pavilion will feature Baba’s and Rosenboom’s large and experimental bands—theBABAOrchestra and The Daniel Rosenboom Octet—who are redefining the future of jazz.
“You won’t hear any standards at this concert,” said David Roitstein, Chair of the CalArts Jazz Program, in a press release. “This is jazz that looks to the future—not the past.”
