Event Description

In 1958, alto saxophonist Marshall Allen joined forces with Sun Ra.

Today, Arkestra still performs Sun Ra's compositions and arrangements, augmented by Allen's. 

Sun Ra Arkestra may number anywhere from 10 pieces up to 25, often including dancers and singers as well as virtuosic musicians. 

The only way to describe an Arkestra gig is unpredictable and multi-hued.

Experience a sound like no other as they will be accompanied by the live, real-time drawing of visual artist Michael Arthur.
