Creative Music Studio Celebration

Friday, October 24 at 7:30 pm • Peter Jay Sharp Theatre
Day of Show $35; Advance $30; Members $25

Leading jazz artists come together for an unforgettable concert honoring the legacy of the Creative Music Studio, the Woodstock hotbed of musical exploration that gave birth to the concept of world jazz—the improvisational and compositional expansion of the world’s musical traditions.

Join founders Karl Berger and Ingrid Sertso for a roof-raising concert, along with John Zorn, Anthony Braxton, and Steven Bernstein’s Millennial Territory Orchestra comprising Steven Bernstein, Clark Gayton, Charlie Burnham, Doug Wieselman, Peter Apfelbaum, Erik Lawrence, Matt Munisteri, Ben Allison and Ben Perowsky

This event benefits the efforts to preserve and digitize the CMS Archive, containing more than 400 audio and video tapes of live performances by some of the world’s greatest musical innovators, including Dave Holland, Lee Konitz, Carla Bley, Steve Reich, Lester Bowie, and Allen Ginsberg.
