Experimentation and improvisation are the game for Open Arts. Comprised of members of the new Brunswick musical improv community (ensemble bassist Andrew Reed Miller, Nadia Francavilla, violin; Robins Streb, viola; Joel Leblanc, guitar and Joël Cormier, percussion) Open Arts presents Charade Parade: “a post-classical experimental marching band.”

During their THIRD SHIFT performance Open Arts will be on the move. Drums strapped to chests and amps stuffed into backpacks Open Arts only play mobile instruments. Don’t worry about their restless feet, we’re sure you’ll always be able to follow the music to their parade route.

Open Arts is produced by Motion Ensemble Inc., and as they put it they’ve “organized adventurous music since 1998.”
