New Directions! New Music! New Compositions!

The flagship group of Upstream, following the vision outlined in 1992 of an ensemble of improvising composers, the rejuvenated Ensemble charts new courses into the skillful unknown, boasting some of the most accomplished creative musicians in our port.

This concert will feature a new work by each member of the Ensemble, each exploring the dynamic between the literate score and the intuitively improvised.  

With members drawn from the jazz, classical, pop, folk and experimental music scenes in Halifax, and each with a distinct vocabulary of improvisation,  the combined energies of this group offer a stunning range of musical horizons

Featuring: Lukas Pearse, Dawn Hatfield, Geordie Haley, Tim Crofts, Devin Wesley, Jeff Reilly, Doug Cameron, Andrew MacKelvie, Andrew Jackson and Donald MacLennan
