The In Between Series: Karl Berger Improvisers Orchestra
February 18, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Downtown Arts District and Timucua Arts Foundation present the In Between Series: Karl Berger Improvisers Orchestra, featuring Ingrid Sertso, Billy Martin, and the UCF New Music Ensemble
Improviser, composer, arranger, percussionist, and musical visionary Karl Berger returns to Orlando to lead his Improvisers Orchestra, a project that utilizes local musicians from across the musical spectrum to create a collectively improvised performance. Berger conducts the spontaneous performance, listening intently to the ideas and colors of the improvised music, orchestrating at will and eliciting spell-binding performances from the players.
This iteration of the Improvisers Orchestra features Berger, his long-time musical collaborator Ingrid Sertso, renowned drummer Billy Martin of Medeski, Martin, & Wood, and the UCF New Music Ensemble.
Karl Berger and Ingrid Sertso recently handed over leadership of the Woodstock, N.Y’.s non-profit Creative Music Foundation, started by Berger and Ornette Coleman back in 1971, to drummer Billy Martin of Medeski, Martin, & Wood. The pastoral arts foundation had a fervent start including a board consisting of composers John Cage, George Russell, Gil Evans, Gunther Schuller and super-genius writer Buckminster Fuller.
