Music Improvisation Takes the Rockies with The Everyone Orchestra
FEATURING: STEVE KIMOCK, MICHAEL KANG, JENNFIER HARTSWICK,
TREVOR GARROD, JEFF SIPE AND MORE CONDUCTED BY MATT BUTLER
The Everyone Orchestra returns to Colorado for a four night run beginning September 16. Conductor Matt Butler will facilitate the musical improvisation of an unrivaled all-star cast including Steve Kimock on guitar, Jeff Sipe (Leftover Salmon, Trey Anastasio Band) on drums, Jennifer Hartswick (Trey Anastasio Band) on trumpet and vocals, Trevor Garrod (Tea Leaf Green) on keys, Michael Kang (SCI) on violin and mandolin, Mike Sugar (Jambay) on bass, Chuck Morris (Lotus) on percussion and YOU.
How do you fit into the Everyone Orchestra? The fully improvised performance is the brainchild of founder Matt Butler, who incorporates the skill set of the assembled all-star line up with the voices and sounds of the audience for an energetic and participatory musical experience. Literally an orchestra where everyone in the room takes part, the Everyone Orchestra brings together its own brand of musical improvisation that must be experienced to be believed!
The concept was developed by Butler, who looks to the local community he is performing in to play the supporting role. Together, with an arsenal of local and national talent, who are often performing together for the first time, the orchestra will embark on an improvised adventure directed by cue cards and animated motions.
The four-night traveling event will kick off at Hodi’s Half Note in Fort Collins on Sept 16th and will continue to Quixotes True Blue (formerly Owsleys) on September 17th – Sunday September 19th. The Sunday, September 19th performance is billed as an intimate happy hour set on the outdoor patio stage, weather permitting.
Featuring Kimock, Jeff Sipe, Jennifer Hartswick, Michael Kang, conductor Matt Butler and more!
