Unprecedented in its range and diversity, CMS was an acknowledged phenomenon in the international music world.

The Stone is proud to host a new series of CMS workshops in 2011: a new improviser's workshop orchestra gets underway EVERY MONDAY NIGHT IN 2011 led by composer/pianist/vibist Karl Berger. Conducted in the tradition of the legendary Creative Music Studio (www.creativemusicstudio.org), original compositions, themes by the likes of Don Cherry, Ornette Coleman, and world musical melodies will be utilized for orchestral explorations and contrasting solo/duo/trio flights.
