Every last Thursday of the month we invite you to join us for the Jam Session/Open Mic
Jam Session is the place where music is created in front of your eyes, Where musicians come together to play in most unpredictable settings and where creativity and spontaneity reigns. If you play, bring your instruments, if you don't, bring a good mood and have fun with us!!!
Inquiry welcomes the new Director of the WORCESTER ART MUSEUM MATTHIAS WASCHEK. In this wide-ranging and fascinating discussion, Matthias Waschek talks about what art museums need to do to stay vital in the twenty-first century, why we need to redefine the Worcester Art Museum’s “story”, and how art museums can connect more successfully with modern diverse audiences. This is a new and exciting look ahead at what is in store for the Worcester Art Museum for the next decade, so don’t miss this show!
Pascual's sound is a truly organic blend of a mastery of traditional and contemporary flamenco with his love of jazz, classical, rock, and more. A graduate of New England Conservatory's Contemporary Improvisation program (formerly Third Stream)...he has spent the last 20 years forging a unique path fusing an array of influences into his flamenco-based vocabulary.
Snakeoil, Tim Berne's new touring band, is a potent blend of new voices and new ideas. Oscar Noriega (woodwinds), Matt Mitchell (keyboards) and Ches Smith (percussion) bring fresh sounds and vibrant energy. Berne responds with a stunning book of new pieces balancing compositional rigor with fluid group improvisation. Hypnotic rhythms and long, seductive melodies collide with jagged dissonances and surprising textural shifts. A lush, organic blend of saxophones and clarinets is layered with electronic and acoustic keyboards and an ever-changing tapestry of percussion.
