The annual Berklee LA Alumni Brunch is our community’s flagship event and our largest gathering of the year. This year, we will celebrate at the gorgeous Skirball Cultural Center with Roger H. Brown, Berklee’s president, who will be on hand to speak about new developments at the college and to introduce our keynote speaker: innovative artist; composer; performer; film, record, and concert producer; record company owner; and artists’ advocate T Bone Burnett, who recently visited Berklee’s Boston campus.

The event will include music from Dr. Magpie, an acoustic, improvisational alumni string ensemble, and a light buffet breakfast will be provided in a lovely courtyard with seating inside for attendees. With last year’s LA Alumni Brunch selling out at 400 attendees, it is the single largest alumni event that Berklee hosts—an event you don’t want to miss.
