CMS Curates Concert Series at Symphony Space's Thalia Theater

Curates. That's an odd term. But I guess that's what they're doin'.

On January 16, 2009, the concert will be "In the Spirit of Don Cherry," an All-Star Octet under the direction of Karl Berger, performing mostly music by Don Cherry.

March 6, 2009 will be a musical conversation of alto saxophonist Oliver Lake with pianist Vijay Iver.

We missed the first one, which was the Jewish Music Project on December 12, featuring Steven Bernstein (trumpet/slide trumpet/compositions), Peter Apfelbaum (tenor saxophone, flute, piano , compositions), Mark Helias on bass, Dafnis Pietro on drums, and vibist/pianist Karl Berger.
