Berklee President Roger H. Brown invites the Los Angeles alumni community to join him on a short morning hike for conversation about new developments at Berklee, your career stories, and some fun.

Meet in the parking lot at Fryman Road and Laurel Canyon Boulevard (parking is available there or in the surrounding neighborhood) for a hike that will begin promptly at 8:15 a.m.

The 2.3 mile loop hike starts off steep, but is a wide, easy, and well-shaded trail that meanders through chaparral, walnut woodland, and coastal sage scrub. The dog-friendly loop begins and ends at Laurel Canyon Boulevard and Fryman Rd., which is a few blocks south of Ventura Boulevard in Studio City.

Please remember to bring sunscreen and wear good walking shoes. Refreshments will be provided after the hike. More hike information is available here.

The Green Room networking event is back at a new location. After a hiatus due to the closing of the Cat & Fiddle (the venue we called home for six years), we've found a new hot spot in Hollywood. Aventine combines traditional trattoria food with the ambiance of a Hollywood bar to create a social trattoria. We've reserved the gorgeous outdoor patio for our night. Appetizers will be passed from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., and alumni will receive one free drink ticket. Valet parking ($8) and nearby public parking ($8–$10) are available.

The Green Room is a Berklee alumni networking event that attracts young alumni who are new to town and established alumni looking to connect with their friends. Averaging 100 guests per event, it is the alumni event to attend if you're looking to chat, mix, and mingle with Berklee's LA community.
