Summary of Repertoire at UCLA, 1930-1939
There were 3 performances a week, Tuesdays and Fridays at noon, and Sundays at 4 p.m. For 2 semesters of 15 weeks each, this is 90 a year for 9 academic years, about 800 total. At about five pieces each, this would be about 4,000 pieces performed. The repertoire list contains about 400 compositions, by 143 composers. So each composition was played an average of about ten times over the 9 years.
