The Wooden Fish Ensemble presents concerts of music and musicians from a variety of cultural and national backgrounds working together in a collaborative way. The Ensemble has presented concerts of traditional music from Asia and new music by a diverse group of composers that includes John Cage, Christian Wolff, Frederic Rzewski, Morton Feldman, Hyo-shin Na and Walter Zimmermann. They have given numerous world premieres.

Wooden Fish: a fish with eyes always open – the possibility, the ideal of being always alert. Another possibility perhaps more natural to us: to be “disorganized”, with no leader, no director, no hierarchy, but with a malleability of people, direction, sound, listening.

A reception will follow the concert. Everyone is cordially invited!
