Weight in the Fingertips: A Musical Odyssey from Soviet Ukraine to the World Stage Book Release Celebration with Inna Faliks

In her new memoir, UCLA Head of Piano Inna Faliks takes readers on a profound journey from her early days as a young prodigy in Soviet Ukraine to becoming a world-renowned concert pianist; navigating the challenges of immigration, assimilation in America, and years of intense musical training, all framed by a love story of cinematic proportions.

This special book release event, part of the final day of our current exhibitions, will not only provide insights into Faliks’ personal and artistic evolution but also treat attendees to a captivating performance where Faliks will play personally meaningful pieces reflecting key moments of her story.

Ticketing Info

Free tickets for our exhibitions’ closing day will be released at 10:00 a.m. Friday, October 6. Registration doesn’t guarantee a seat, seats will be provided first come first serve. Due to the expected popularity, we expect both of the days performances to be standing room only, so we encourage guests to arrive early to take in the exhibitions.
