Eight-time Grammy winner and Los Angeles native Herb Alpert has given $15 million to the School of Music at the California Institute of the Arts.
In recognition of the gift, to be announced today, the school will be renamed the Herb Alpert School of Music. Alpert and his wife, Lani Hall, had previously given $9 million to the School through his Herb Alpert Foundation.
In November last year, the trumpeter pledged $30 million to establish a new music school at the cross-disciplinary UCLA.
