A concert both composed and freely improvised by a cohort of 12 musicians working together to create music on the spot.
Come experience this unique work of music created before your eyes. Both composed and freely improvised by 12 musicians, this work features Nashville's Matt Endahl, the composer and pianist, Kalamazoo-based musicians, and other members of Endahl's original "Doomsday Philharmonic" who recorded the original in 2018. Tickets are $10 via the Eventbrite link prior to the show and $15 at the door. Doors open at 7:30pm.
A workshop at 3pm on this same day is open to the public for those who want to explore improvised music and try their hand at reading the score with others. This is free and requires no registration.
