Composer Gabriel Kahane blurs the boundaries between popular and classical idioms with "Come On All You Ghosts," his setting of three poems by San Francisco-based Matthew Zapruder, for voice and string quartet. In each of the songs, Kahane seeks musical equivalents for Zapruder's exploration of spiritual and philosophical concerns as expressed in the mundanity of contemporary life. The result is a song cycle that is at once adventurous and accessible, with language both naturalistic and absurd - much like life.

This year's musical benefit features a campus homecoming with world renowned bass guitarist Nathan East, '78.. Nathan East has played with rock music's greatest artists for the past 35 years - from Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson to Madonna, Beyoncé and Daft Punk. At this special benefit concert he returns to his San Diego roots to play with UC San Diego Music faculty and alumni, while raising funds for UCSD's endowed Lytle Scholarship.

More than 140 students from two dozen Los Angeles area public and private elementary schools present a program of classical and popular music at the 15th annual All Schools Elementary Honor Youth Orchestra in UCLA's Schoenberg Hall.

Student ages range from seven to twelve, with the average age of an honor orchestra member being just ten years old. Recorded on 07/06/2013.
