Stephen Nachmanovitch
Workshop: Trusting Creativity, Nourishing Community
www.junghouston.org/programs/spring/nachmanovitch.html
10 AM - 4 PM
Houston Jung Center
Houston, Texas, United States
How does creative expression - even the most solitary, seemingly private act - change and enrich our communities? Most creative acts do not end in products that would win prizes or awards. But all still carry some spiritual essence of communication, and even those that are never seen by others change us in ways that deepen our capacity to communicate and engage with others.

Through lecture, discussion, and activities, we will experience the vital importance of creative play in our lives. Play is a divine quality that we can bring to anything, an attitude and a presence rather than a defined activity. To be vibrantly alive in the moment we need to be alert to the power of limits and mistakes and to trust our own inherent ability to create. And we need to embrace not only the personally healing potential of creativity, but also the ways in which it is necessary for the growth and enduring health of the communities that sustain us.

Chicago Creative Music Workshop
http:ccmw.jazzinchicago.org
11am-5pm
Chicago College of Performing Arts, Roosevelt Univ
Chicago, Illinois, United States
Debut of Chicago Creative Music Workshop: An Institute for Improvised Music

Chicago, IL – September 2nd and 3rd the Chicago Jazz Festival, a partnership between the Chicago Mayor’s Office of Special Events and the Jazz Institute of Chicago, presents the Chicago Creative Music Convergence (CCMW), under the direction of Nicole Mitchell and Renee Baker. Sponsored by the Chicago Jazz Festival and the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University, the CCMW will offer a unique opportunity to learn from master improvisers and perform with them in a variety of settings.

Why start a Creative Music workshop in Chicago? Co-Director Nicole Mitchell explains: “Creative music is one of Chicago's greatest cultural strengths. It's a local secret that has long been praised internationally. Perhaps the seed was the early work of Sun Ra, and later, the inception of the AACM, with its great trailblazers including Muhal Richard Abrams, Roscoe Mitchell, Anthony Braxton, George Lewis and many more. Chicago is the perfect home for this endeavor. Creative music is now more vital than ever here; it incubates at Fred Anderson's Velvet Lounge, Elastic Arts and the Hungry Brain and reverberates throughout the world. We owe it to Chicago to provide a place and time where international and local Chicago musicians of this distinct, high level music can study, talk about and develop this music, in an accessible educational environment.”

2009 CCMW faculty includes internationally renowned artists such as Art Ensemble of Chicago saxophonist, composer, and Mills College Distinguished Milhaud Professor Roscoe Mitchell, master bassist William Parker, flutist, AACM President and CCMW Artistic co-director Nicole Mitchell, percussionist Michael Zerang, saxophonist and educator David Boykin, professor of music and flutist Ellen Waterman, and violinist and CCMW Artistic co-director Renee Baker.

The two day schedule will include classes in both creative improvisation and improvisation oriented composition, chances to play in large group settings, as well as lectures by faculty and faculty performances.

Held at the facilities of the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University, CCMW will offer unprecedented access to these master musicians in a format that distinguishes itself from other jazz workshops with its focus on creative improvised music.

Nicole Mitchell, Artistic Co-Director of CCMW, President of Chicago AACM defines Creative Music as “…an improvised music that goes beyond expectation by creating new musical ideas and languages, embracing all that has happened in the global history of sound, and celebrating authenticity.”

The Brooklyn Side-Saddle Sallies: JoAnne Maffia and Andrea La Rose

Percussionist Joanne Maffia (THe jojo EXperiment) and flutist Andrea La Rose (Anti-Social Music) join forces with bassist Bradley Kemp and trumpeter Stephanie Richards to play music that hovers somewhere in the amorphous no-man's-land of classical intellectual wanking, post-bop noodling, and pseudo-klezmer minstrelsy, taking the best and leaving the rest.

You can learn more about JoAnne Maffia's work here: http://www.thejojoexperiment.com/listen.php
