Presented in collaboration with Columbia University School of the Arts


Columbia University School of the Arts presents an unprecedented and rare opportunity to hear one of the most legendary bands of all time, the Art Ensemble of Chicago. Marking 50 years since they originally began to perform as the Roscoe Mitchell Art Ensemble, the group reemerged at Café OTO in London earlier this year to great acclaim. This performance will be their only New York City stop, one day ahead of their participation in October Revolution, a new jazz and contemporary music festival in Philadelphia. Joining the Art Ensemble for this concert will be original member Joseph Jarman, who will be performing his poetry, long an integral part of the band’s shows.

Tickets available online only, via the Lenfest Center for the Arts.

Additional Information

Major support for this performance of The Art Ensemble of Chicago is provided by the Robert D. Bielecki Foundation.
