Polyorchard is pleased to announce The Exsufflation Series, a new monthly residency at The Carrack in Durham. Following on the heels of the successful monthly Free Improvised Tuesday series, The Exsufflation Series will focus on the grey area that Polyorchard has been mining for the last four years: the intersection of jazz, classical, & experimental traditions. In addition to free improvisation, the repertoire will be drawn from all manners of music with a special focus on spontaneous compositions from the ensemble, commissioning new works from members of Polyorchard and from other composers around the world, and selections from the repertoire of late twentieth/twenty-first century classical music.
This is the second concert in the ongoing Exsufflation Series! Polyorchard will be performing David Menestres’s new composition “Those of the Gray Wind,” very loosely based on the book of the same name by naturalist Paul A. Johnsgard. The music starts at 8pm. The event is free and open to all. BYOB.
Polyorchard will be Jason Bivins, Jil Christiansen, Laurent Estoppey, Bill McConaghy, David Menestres, Charles Phaneuf, and others.
The music begins at 8pm, every third Tuesday. The events are free and open to all.
Future dates in the series:
Chris Vitiello writing in IndyWeek: “The revolving, motley assortment of classical, jazz and rock musicians have played practically every kind of music in every possible configuration in almost every Triangle venue, emerging as a vital and wonderfully vexing force of the area’s sonic fringes.”
