Spheres of Influence – Crisis: React/Respond

Sunday, June 23 @ 6:45 pm - 8:30 pm

Arts Collaborative Medford invites you to join John Dalton’s Spheres of Influence as they present a set of original compositions reflecting on the various crises of our era, in partnership with the Medford Jazz Festival and Medford Arts Council. We live in an era of acute and immediate issues, ranging from the environmental, to the social and political. Art gives us a framework in which to process these complex problems.

Performing for Spheres of Influence will be band leader John Dalton (drums), Erik Van Dam (saxophones), Jim Robitaille (guitar), Jonathan Fagan (piano) and Evan Palmer (bass). Their concert will begin at 7:30 p.m., but arrive early for a pre-concert discussion starting at 6:45 on various methodologies of composition, improvisation and performance, and how they can be used to express social and political themes. Music allows us to conceive of better ways of collaborating, communicating, and organizing ourselves.

This is a free community event with a suggested donation of $15. RSVP through the ACM website.
