The Improv Ensemble is a small ensemble exploring the art of spontaneous composition in a group setting. Members are expected to have a strong grasp of their native instrument and the willingness to play a diverse array of genres from hip-hop to funk to jazz to indie rock. Under the direction of Joe Horton (No Bird Sing, Coloring Time), the group hones their listening ability, group chemistry, and compositional technique to produce on the fly compositions fluid enough to be mistaken for pre-conceived pieces. This is not a jam band.
