The London Improvisers Orchestra will make its first ever appearance at Longfield Hall, showcasing conducted improvisations by both old and new members of the group. Expect highly dynamic music with rich orchestral textures, delicate solos, evocative soundscapes and methodical madness.
Since 1998, the London Improvisers Orchestra has been dedicated to the arts of conducted improvisation, or ‘Conduction’, and free improvisation. The orchestra was formed from the ashes of the 1997 touring group of American improviser Butch Morris, the pioneering inventor of Conduction. Since its birth, the group has had hundreds of members pass through its ranks, including Evan Parker, Pat Thomas, Byron Wallen, John Edwards, Lol Coxhill, Caroline Kraabel, and Mark Sanders. To this day, the group is led by founding member Steve Beresford, an icon of the UK’s improvisation movement.

The orchestra usually performs monthly, featuring a rotating cast of the finest improvisers from the UK and beyond, never failing to deliver a unique experience.
