NOW Improvisation Workshops


For nearly 20 years, the New Orchestra Workshop Society has presented an annual series of workshops aimed at educating musicians at all levels of ability in the varied techniques of improvised music.

Each week, a different facilitator will present his or her own approaches to this music. Artists from around the world bring their own unique perspectives to the spontaneous creation of music.

• All workshops are free and open to all players and observers.
• Bring your instrument.
• Workshops are not instrument specific
• All events take place at the Western Front (303 East 8th Avenue)
