Workshops & Concerts: all about improvisation

at 1313 Hollis Street, Halifax

Led by Creative Director Jerry Granelli and 1313 Music Association’s President Tim Crofts, the goal is to provide space and opportunity for a vital and sustainable musical and artistic community in Nova Scotia, to promote the importance of openness in all aspects of the creative process and to promote musical education that is rooted in the fundamental elements thereof.

In the past few years, the 1313 Music Association has presented the Creative Music Lab, the Creative Music Ensemble, the Facing the Future Concert Series, the Jazz Repertoire Class, Sound+Motion: The Creative Process and most recently the Heart of Improvisation Concert and Workshop Series.
