“Melodies”: Jazz Guitarist Michael Iyanaga and Vocalist Kana Shimanuki
Friday, April 16
The project “Melodies” is a joint effort by guitarist Michael Iyanaga and vocalist Kanami Shimanuki to showcase some of the 20th century’s most beautiful melodies, as only unamplified guitar and voice can do. In this performance, they will play music by Antonio Carlos Jobim, George Gerswhin, and Burt Bacharach, three composers whose music always exhibited soft and tender melodic brilliance.
The rotunda is on the second floor of the Powell Library Building, which is directly across from Royce Hall. Parking is $10; the closest parking is in structures four, two, or five. See the UCLA maps and directions page for more information.
Admission to the concerts is free, and seating is unreserved.
