The Creative Music Studio™ Improvisers Orchestra, conducted by Karl Berger, will commence its fall season on Saturday, September 30 at the El Taller Cultural Community Center at 215, East 99th Street in Manhattan.

Karl’s conducting blends and harmonizes improvised sounds and rhythms in constantly shifting instrumentations and dynamics. One of the orchestra’s trademarks is Ingrid Sertso's unique vocalizations and poetry. 
The CIO is comprised of eminent improvisers: Jason Hwang Leonor Falcon, Annemarie Wiesner, strings, Ras Moshe, flute and tenor sax; Haruna Fukazawa, Bill Horberg, flutes; Gene Coleman, alto flute, Nick Gianni, bass flute, Don Payne, clarinet; Christoph Knoche, bass clarinet; Richard Keene, oboe; Jason Candler, soprano sax; Welf Dorr, Patrick Brennan, alto sax; Bill Ylitalo, baritone sax; Westwood Johnson, trombones; Ted Orr, guitar; Warren Smith, drums, Nicolas Letman, bass percussion; and surprise guests.
