Karl Berger's Improvisers Orchestra

Karl Berger's Improvisers Orchestra of 20+ professional string, horn, and percussion soloists continues at El Taller. 

Improvisational ideas developed in the 7:00 PM Workshop / Rehearsal transform into a fully formed 8:30 PM Performance. 

Using his "Music Mind" concept, Karl introduces a new approach and experience of harmonizing improvised sound. Conducted in Karl's distinctive style and developed at the celebrated Creative Music Studio, this orchestra of extraordinary improvisers explores original themes, melodies from the world's folk traditions, and compositions written by legendary artists such as Don Cherry and Ornette Coleman. One of the orchestra's trademarks is Ingrid Sertso's remarkable poetry and vocalization.
