Alumni Reception

Annual Berklee SoCal Alumni Brunch

Sunday / January 26, 2014 / 11:00 a.m.
Henson Recording Studios

Hollywood
CA

Come ring in the new year with your Berklee SoCal alumni community at the annual SoCal alumni brunch! This year, we’ve got a new venue, new food, and a new vibe as we celebrate our alumni community in the courtyard of Henson Studios in Hollywood.

President Roger H. Brown will be speak at the event, sharing all the latest news about the college and introducing this year’s keynote speaker, renowned film composer Alan Silvestri. Silvestri, who is best known for his work with producer Robert Zemeckis, has written numerous memorable and melodic scores to films such as the Back to the Future trilogy, Forrest Gump, Castaway, and, more recently, Flight, The Avengers, and The Croods. Silvestri will discuss his journey from Berklee to his early experiences with TV music scoring in Los Angeles and his subsequent evolution as one of Hollywood’s elite film composers.

The brunch’s venue, Henson Studios, boasts a rich history, starting in 1917 when Charlie Chaplin began construction of the studio. Chaplin filmed several of his great movies at this studio between 1918 through 1952. Through the years, many Berklee alumni have worked and recorded at Henson.

Homegirl Catering will provide a delicious Mexican food buffet. Casual chic attire is appropriate; note that the event is outdoors. Alumni may attend this rain-or-shine event with one guest. Seating is limited and available on a first come, first served basis.

Hosts: Peter Gordon, director of the Berklee Center in LA, and Justine Taormino, assistant director of Alumni Affairs

Parking: Valet parking available for a fee
