The PDX LARGE ENSEMBLE is a new collaborative effort from a community of Portland area improvising/jazz/avant/noise musicians (Mary Sutton, John Savage, Tim DuRoche, Andrew Oliver, Scott Brazieal, Mary-Sue Tobin, Jonathan Sielaff, Todd Dickerson, Kevin Van Geem, Gregg Skloff, Brandon Conway, J Morales, and many more). The group will feature avant compositions, free improvisation and work with touring avant musicians as a residential “house” ensemble. The concerts will be sponsored by the CMG (Creative Music Guild) and take place on bi monthly basis. The initial group was part of a concert in June with Urs Leimgruber (also CMG sponsored).
This concert will feature new works by: Andrew Oliver, Sarah Ann Phillips (L.A.), Ken Ollis, Tom Garcia, Scott Brazieal, Heather Vertigos and others.
Concert date is: Thursday, September 10th. 8-10PM.
