Rob Mazurek and the Exploding Star Orchestra
Ars Nova Workshop
Last month, I drove down to Philadelphia with Bill for a concert with Rob Mazurek and Exploding Star Orchestra. Rob has tried to fold me into the group several times over the past year, so I was excited to be able to join in the activities.
Rob led the ensemble though over an hour and a half of music, mostly joined/linked in a suite-like fashion. He continues to grow and evolve in his conception as orchestra leader. Rob has woven a wonderful intentional community centered on his music. Bill played beautifully, though there were frustrating technical problems with the miking of his trumpet.
