The best American composers
Born in Vienna, Jewish Arnold Schoenberg was forced out of Europe by the rise of the Nazis, taking a teaching position in the United States at the Malkin Conservatory in Boston. He later settled in California where he befriended fellow composer (and tennis partner) George Gershwin and began teaching at UCLA where his students included John Cage.
