Coming in January 2015, the Creative Ensemble Collective will hold their third annual Boston workshop, supported by Berklee College of Music.

This year’s workshop will be a collaboration of styles, focusing on bringing together musicians from varying and contrasting genres in a celebration of the immense diversity of music and its capacity to look beyond all differences. The goal for CEC Boston 2015 is to produce a series of original compositions that exemplifies this philosophy.

The intensive five-day course is designed to give participants the experience of creating music to a deadline, composing as a team and writing for an ensemble that is multistylistic across a broad range of instruments. This is an exciting opportunity for any musician with a desire to go beyond his or her musical boundaries and to broaden their knowledge and understanding of the many aspects of ensemble work, from group composition and arranging to live performance.

As part of the course, the ensemble will present the material composed during the workshop at a special free concert at Café 939. The event will also feature music from past CEC workshops and is a wonderful opportunity to discover what CEC is all about.

The CEC is a nonprofit organization fostering and expanding the development and dissemination of exceptional and diverse music through live performances and studio recordings. The CEC facilitates intensive music workshops in cities around the world focused on collaboration, improvisation, composition, performance, and studio work. The CEC is an equal opportunities organization.
