PDX Large Ensemble Concert

The group will feature avant compositions, free improvisation and work with touring avant musicians as a residential “house” ensemble.

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.
