Announcing New Educational Programs!
The Masterclass Series is a collaboration between the Racer Sessions, the University of Washington’s Improvised Music Project, and Cornish College of the Arts. The series will bring in a different longstanding band every month to perform and facilitate a discussion about their evolution as a group, artistic concept, approach, and vision. This is an open forum where attendees can ask questions and participate in an open discussion.
Where: Alternating between UW and Cornish College campuses (see calendar for details)
When: 7:30-9:00pm on the first Monday of every month
The first installment of the Masterclass series will take place at the Cafe Solstice in the U-District on Monday, October 5th and will feature local Table & Chairs band Bad Luck!
