The Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra’s 7th Annual International Festival (GIOfest VII) brings together the world’s finest improvising and experimental musicians for new works, workshops with the community – a celebration of  improvised music in all its forms.
The line-up of seminal guests this year (bringing with them new commissions/collaborations exclusively for GIO) includes Ilan Volkov, Maya Dunietz, Gino Robair, John Butcher, Norway’s free jazz supergroup Lemur, Steve Beresford, Michel Doneda, Corey Mwamba and Maggie Nicols.

The theme of the festival is ‘Connected Elements’ and includes filmmaker Kate Cotter  and visual artist Jo Ganter, who have produced work exclusively for GIO to ‘connect’ with around the CCA during the festival.

Performances, discussions and workshops come together to make three days of inspiring, enquiring and life affirming music.


Prices: £8 per day/£20 festival pass
