The UCLA Philharmona is the flagship orchestra of the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, and one of Southern California’s premier training orchestras. Its music directors have included Lukas Foss, Richard Dufallo, Mehli Mehta, Samuel Krachmalnick, Alexander Treger, and Jon Robertson. Since 2005, Philharmonia has been led by Neal Stulberg, who has greatly expanded the scope of the ensemble’s activities with performances of Mahler and Bruckner symphonies; an evening-long exploration of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique with commentary by UCLA Professor Robert Winter; UCLA Opera productions of Verdi’s Falstaff and Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro and Don Giovanni; and a Royce Hall performance of works by Recovered Voices composers Franz Schreker, Alexander Zemlinsky, and Arnold Schoenberg, conducted by Los Angeles Opera Music Director James Conlon.
Neal Stulberg consistently garners international acclaim for performances of clarity, insight, and conviction. He has led the Philadelphia Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, among others, and served as assistant conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic under Carlo Maria Giulini. He has given premieres of works by Steve Reich, Dmitri Smirnov, Joan Tower, Peter Schat, and Peter van Onna, and led the period-instrument Philharmonia Baroque in a festival of Mozart orchestral and operatic works. In 2001, he conducted Philip Glass’s opera Akhnaten at the Rotterdam Festival and Thomas Adès’s Powder Her Face with Long Beach Opera. A native of Detroit, Stulberg is a graduate of Harvard College, the University of Michigan, and the Juilliard School. He currently serves as Music Chair and Director of Orchestral Studies at UCLA’s Herb Alpert School of Music.
