HAPPY NEW YEAR from everyone at Tuning the Air!
We are on a brief holiday break, returning to rehearsal in January.
2010 has been a milestone year for Tuning The Air! It featured the debut of new music director Chris Gibson, who took us deeper into the world of improvisation and “spontaneous composition”. We have also seen a number of new pieces of music, including King Crimson’s Vrooom, a haunting version of Neptune from Gustav Holst’s “The Planets”, a new scorcher from Bob Williams Ninth Guitar E and perhaps even a few more surprises before closing night In addition to new music, we’ve continued to work with electric guitarist and texturist Joel Palmer and oboist Darlene Franz. Both have contributed astounding new textures and layers to our repertoire and improvisations.
Already new material and new ideas are being discussed for the 2011 season!
