What do you get when you bring a group of Chicago musicians of all genres together with no set playlist? Spontaneous combustion? Nope – rapid fire composition! Tomorrow night a new musical showcase launches at Katerina's
on Chicago's North Side. The Composers Studio
will feature interviews with female musicians, but the audience will play a key role as well. They'll throw out their ideas. Then just like any improv show the musicians will create a composition on the spot. We decided to do a version of the event right here. Throughout today's show you've been hearing the music of Jeannie Tanner
and June Shellene
. Before they do some spontaneous composing, they share details about the showcase.
