Spectacle 2017


Join us for the fourth installment of Spectacle at Real Art Ways. Since 2014, we have gathered an intergenerational group – mostly different each time – of improvisors in the spring.

Expect a mix of groupings small and large and, likely, a small orchestra rounding out the afternoon.

“Contemporary creative music often seeks to balance the energy of spontaneous real-time exploratory playing with the design potential of structure and form. Morris and Haynes have brought together a pool of talented musicians and the without-a-net framework and unexpected combinations are likely to inspire exciting playing.”
– John Adamian, CTNow
