Performing Arts


Concerts, dance recitals, and theater productions are all part of exceptional programs offered by the Ethnomusicology; Film, Television, and Digital Media; Music; Theater; and World Arts and Cultures/Dance departments, and by the Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA.

Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA

Since 1937, the Center for the Art of Performance (CAP) at UCLA has been a premier West Coast showcase for world-class performing artists and ensembles as well as innovative new work in dance, music, theater, and performance art. The center presents more than 200 public concerts and events each year, often sponsoring debut performances of new works by major artists. Through the center, the campus hosts a varied and active performance program, ranging from regular concerts by the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra to events with The Symphonic Body UCLA, Contra-Tiempo, Peter Sellars, Cassandra Wilson, Anoushka Shankar, Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, Randy Newman, Bojofondo, Buddy Guy, and Young Jean Lee’s Theater Company. Subject to availability, discount tickets are offered to students, faculty, and staff.

Department Events

The Ethnomusicology Department offers students the opportunity to perform in various world music and jazz ensembles that give concerts listed in the department schedule of events.

The Film, Television, and Digital Media Department features student-directed films and television programs throughout the year, and the Theater Department presents a series of major productions to the general public. The School of Theater, Film, and Television annual Design Showcase West and Film Festival is a week-long celebration of film, digital media, animation, screenwriting, and acting that features everything from performance art to the classics.

The Music Department features performances by ensembles ranging from music theater to opera. Its Gluck Outreach Program and Music Partnership Program reach out to the community through free performances throughout Los Angeles and Southern California.

The World Arts and Cultures/Dance Department presents events and concerts involving department faculty members, guest artists, and students. Student performances include MFA concerts, an undergraduate and graduate student-produced concert, and the Senior Concert/Colloquium. Students also perform in more informal programs, such as the end-of-term student works festival or Pau Hana , that feature many world dance forms.
