Alexander Berne

New Sounds

Alleged Orchestras

Saturday, March 22, 2014

All sorts of different ensembles will play with our expectations of the "orchestra," for this New Sounds program, including Alexander Berne & the Abandoned Orchestra, where the traditional orchestral instruments have been abandoned and Berne invented his own.  There's also music from the Asphalt Orchestra, a 12-piece guerrilla marching band whose spectacular antics, omnivorous repertoire, and brave arrangements invade streets via an exuberant new music parade.
