Edgefest 2019: OUT West

KCH 23rd annual Edgefest explores the rich contributions of West Coast artists/composers in the development of avant jazz & new music.

Kerrytown Concert House presents the 23rd annual 4-day avant-garde jazz and creative new music festival Edgefest. A roster of distinguished ground-breaking composer/performers with their ensembles and collaborators will illuminate their various innovative roles in the avant/jazz world.

Ann Arbor/Detroit area improvisers will be integrated into the festival, often collaborating with visiting artists. Edgefest presents cutting-edge and category-defying music, often ignored in the commercial marketplace. Diverse audiences from the region and beyond are exposed to this art form, expanding their musical, cultural, and worldviews of art music through a series of free and ticketed public concerts in downtown Ann Arbor with related educational activities. Participating Michigan artists meet and collaborate with international artists, enhancing their own career opportunities.
