Columbia University School of the Arts presents an unprecedented and rare opportunity to hear one of the most legendary bands of all time, the Art Ensemble of Chicago. Marking 50 years since they originally began to perform as the Roscoe Mitchell Art Ensemble, the group reemerged at Café OTO in London earlier this year to great acclaim. This performance will be their only New York City stop, one day ahead of their participation in October Revolution, a new jazz and contemporary music festival in Philadelphia. Joining the Art Ensemble for this concert will be original member Joseph Jarman, who will be performing his poetry, long an integral part of the band’s shows.Presented in collaboration with Columbia University School of the Arts and Miller Theatre.

Major support for this performance of The Art Ensemble of Chicago is provided by the Robert D. Bielecki Foundation.

San Diego’s visionary Fresh Sound concert series of cutting-edge music will kick off the second half of its 20th anniversary season with a Saturday concert by solo bagpipe virtuoso Matt Welch.

His 7:30 p.m. performance at Bread & Salt in Barrio Logan will be followed by an Oct. 27 concert by trombonist and electronic music maverick Michael Dessen and his trio. The group teams Dessen, a UCSD graduate who now teaches at UC Irvine, with flutist and fellow UC Irvine music professor Nicole Mitchell and fast-rising San Diego pianist Joshua White, whose new album is due out soon.

The Fresh Sound fall concert series will conclude with a Nov. 20 solo piano recital by Canada’s Vicky Chow, who is a key member of the New York-based Bang On a Can All-Stars. Chow also performs in the piano duo X88 and in the New Music Detroit ensemble. She has worked with the International Contemporary Ensemble, which was founded by flutist and San Diego native Claire Chase.
