El Taller Latino Americano

Event Calendar

Karl Berger

4 Thursdays for Improvisers and reduced audiences. 

The Music Legend comes Uptown! The Taller is honored to welcome Karl Berger following a critically-acclaimed run at The Jazz Gallery, and before that at the Stone.  

Karl Berger's Orchestra of 20+ professional string, horn and percussion soloists continues to turn improvisational ideas developed in the 7:30 pm workshop/rehearsal into a fully formed 9:00 pm performance. Using his "Music Mind" concept, Karl introduces a new approach and experience of harmonizing improvised sound. 

Conducted in his inimitable style and developed at the legendary Creative Music Studio, this orchestra of extraordinary improvisers explores original themes, melodies from the world's folk traditions and compositions written by legendary improvisers such as Don Cherry or Ornette Coleman, as well as musical ideas that arise spontaneously. One of the orchestra's trademarks is Ingrid Sertso's uncanny vocalization and poetry. 

Due to the number of musicians these 4 events require an RSVP and only 40 persons will be seated
