Concert
Art Ensemble Of Chicago (CANCELLED)

The ART ENSEMBLE OF CHICAGO concert at Cemal Resit Rey Concert Hall on 18 October, Friday is cancelled due to a request from the band. 

Tickets can be refunded via Biletix. Thank your for your understanding.

Avant-garde jazz band Art Ensemble of Chicago builds a unique musical universe by integrating different styles that span the history of jazz with the use of unique sounds and little instruments, traditional hand and stick drums, horns, bells, chimes, vibes, marimba, gongs of all sizes and an array of homemade and found sound objects. These objects serve each individual musician as an extension of their personality on their principal instruments of saxophones, flutes, trumpet and flugelhorn, double bass and drum set. Evolving from founder Roscoe Mitchell's musical vision, explorations and adventurous collaborations in Chicago of the early and mid-sixties, the amazing longevity of this musical entity owes to the shared willingness to support each member's individual musical interests and personal goals. Having released more than 70 live performances, studio recordings, videos and DVDs on a variety of labels including legendary ECM Records, Art Ensemble of Chicago will take the stage for an unforgettable evening. Both founded in 1969, ECM and Art Ensemble of Chicago are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year. Join us for this double celebration of two musical life-spans full of inspiring stories!
