Rovations! September - Freight and Salvage - Berkeley
Ticket Link for Rovations!


A great evening of adventurous music to celebrate Rova Saxophone Quartet’s 45th anniversary.

September 14, 2023, 8PM, at Freight & Salvage. (Doors at 7 PM.)

Since its inception Rova has collaborated with other individuals and ensembles to co-create the unexpected. For this special show Rova will present works as a quartet, will play quintet improvisations with Robinson, and cook up some singular brews with Fred Frith on el. guitars, Jason Hoopes on bass, and Jordan Glenn on drums.

These kindred spirits will join Rova for seamless and masterful blends of composed and improvised music, the interweaving of which has surprised and delighted audiences in the Bay Area and beyond for nearly five decades. Inspired by forward looking jazz, world music, contemporary classical music, and imaginative rock, Rova has developed a personal and engaging approach to improvisation. The works are often framed by compositional structures that inform and ignite highly original and thoughtfully crafted improvisations.

This is an exciting and rare opportunity to catch eight intrepid Bay Area practitioners co-creating original music for your eyes and ears. And doing that in one of the finest Bay Area venues for music. We hope to see you there!
