While advance registration is not available at this time, we recommend attending the event on standby. We often have last-minute cancelations and no-shows, so spaces can open on the night of the event. To attend on standby, head to Bovard Auditorium and join the standby line. Unclaimed tickets are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis a few minutes before the event begins.

COVID-19 Protocols: Although masks are not required, per the LA County Department of Public Health, it is strongly recommended that attendees wear masks for their own protection and the protection of others.

Five-time Grammy winner Jacob Collier is hailed as one of the most prodigious and creative forces of his generation. Since the split-screen, multitrack, viral music videos he posted on YouTube as a teen were discovered by Quincy Jones, the 27-year-old multi-instrumentalist, singer, arranger, composer, and producer has gone on to collaborate with the likes of Herbie Hancock, Hans Zimmer, Pharrell, Coldplay, SZA, BTS, Ty Dolla $ign, and Rapsody. Currently, Collier is completing a four-volume musical project, Djesse.

In a unique masterclass on music and the creative mindset hosted by USC Marshall professor David Belasco, Collier will give the audience a rare, intimate, and live glimpse into his art and process. From the piano bench, he will air his thoughts on music and creativity, share songs and stories, and field questions from students.
