Over the past fifty years, Canterbury House has hosted musical performances
by a wide variety of forward-thinking, innovative “prophetic
voices.” In the mid 1960s and early 1970s, the Concert Series
featured now-legendary performers such as Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Richie Havens, Gordon Lightfoot, and the MC5. More recently, the Series has
featured regional acts, student and faculty ensembles, and internationally
known artists drawing from jazz, folk, contemporary classical, electronica,
and improvised music. Artists such as Steve Swell,
Henry Grimes, Billy Bang, Oliver Lake, Faruq Z. Bey and Peter Kowald are a sampling of the high level of
music featured in this series.
(Unless otherwise noted...)
All concerts begin at 8 p.m.
Admission is $10 for general admission and $5 for students/seniors.
A NOTE ABOUT PARKING: Canterbury House has a very small parking lot which is reserved for staff and performers. Please allow time to locate street parking (which is free after 6pm on nearby streets) or park at the Thayer Street Parking Structure, which is at 300 South Thayer Street, just one block from Canterbury House.
Miles Brown's Middle Game
8pm, April 11th
$5 students, $10 general admission
Miles Brown's Middle Game, consists of Andrew Bishop on saxophone, Kris Johnson on trumpet, Mike Jellick on piano, myself on bass, and Jesse Kramer on drums. The name refers to my other passion besides music, chess. The middle game is the part of a chess game that invokes the spirit of improvisation, creativity within a given set of parameters, shifts in energy and momentum, and aesthetic beauty. I'm hoping that these values will inspire the music this bands creates. All the music will be original and/or freely improvised. We'll play mainly my own compositions, but also tunes from the other band members.
