Announcing the New Lowell Milken Center for Music of American Jewish Experience

December 03, 2020

It's an exciting day for the future of Jewish music in America and around the world. With a generous grant from Milken Archive founder Lowell Milken, UCLA has opened North America’s first permanent academic home for the study of music of American Jewish experience.

"From the outset, our vision was to create a living archive making education central to our mission. The partnership with the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music positions the new center as a global leader in the field of music of American Jewish experience."— Lowell Milken

Lowell Milken talks about the impact of the Milken Archive and announces the new Lowell Milken Center for Music of American Jewish Experience.

Building on the work of the Milken Archive, the new center will foster artistic creativity, scholarship, performance and other cultural expression. For Jewish music fans, this means more academic study, more publicly available concerts and lectures, and much, much more!
