Making Music in Los Angeles

University of California Press

This chapter discusses the arrival of ultramodern music in Los Angeles. It first describes music making in Los Angeles during the 1920s, excluding the working-class musicians who were employed in restaurants, bars, and the silent movie palaces. The chapter then introduces Olga Steeb, a successful teacher and artist who remained open to the “new” in music, and also identifies several patrons of the concert music scene, before discussing the ultramodern performances conducted in Los Angeles.

Keywords:   ultramodern music, music making, working-class musicians, Olga Steeb, concert music, ultramodern performances
