Alleged Orchestras

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.

The band name may say “Orchestra,” but the groups’ sounds are not what you’d expect.  Hear Slavic folk, Latin jazz, African guitars and balafons come together in music by The Fake Orchestra.  Also, listen to music from that variable group of musical friends, the Penguin Café Orchestra, along with music performed by the Senegalese Afro-Cuban group called Orchestra Baobob.  Plus, cellist Lori Goldston’s Black Cat Orchestra, the small big band that is Either/Orchestra, and the quiet slow pop duo called Susanna and the Magical Orchestra.  And more.
