Please note, this event has expired.
Part of OZ Arts Nashville’s TNT Local Spotlight Series
Inspired by John Cage’s anarchic concerts of the 1960’s, a “Music Circus” is defined as a series of simultaneous performances, spanning a variety of styles, by both soloists and ensembles. It is a community event with no score and no rules, bar a set of loose guidelines that include: the event should be fun, there should be food and drink, and it should include the greatest possible variety of participants. In celebration of the diversity of artistic endeavors thriving in Nashville, the campus of OZ Arts, both indoors and outdoors, will team with artists presenting works.
“Art instead of being an object made by one person is a process set in motion by a group of people. Art’s socialized. It isn’t someone saying something, but people doing things, giving everyone (including those involved) the opportunity to have experiences they would not otherwise have had.”—John Cage
