In anticipation of CalArts Weekend 2018, which is just around the corner (Oct. 12-13), we’re taking a look back at a few of last year’s highlights. The two-day on campus event features a number of concerts, social activities and enriching forums for both families and returning CalArtians.
Last year, CalArts welcomed back Michael Fitzpatrick (Film/Video BFA 95) and James King (Music BFA 99) of the band Fitz and the Tantrums. The two sat down with moderator Chrysanthe Tan (Critical Studies BFA 14, Music/Critical Studies MFA 17), a composer and violinist, to share their band’s story.
Although Fitzpatrick and King met at CalArts, they wouldn’t become Fitz and the Tantrums until 2008. Their third self-titled album was released in 2016.
