      Everyone Orchestra

      THE EVERYONE ORCHESTRA is a revolving cast of stellar musicians conducted by founder Matt Butler at concerts, festivals and special events. EO performances are designed to span musical genres and break the boundaries of how an audience experiences music, while having a lot of fun and doing good too. It's a celebratory, interactive, improvisational experiment orchestrated by a mad scientist conductor! While Butler is the primary conductor, the Orchestra has also been conducted by other musicians and members of the audience too. The list of Everyone Orchestra participants is an increasingly wide and intercontinental group including members of The Grateful Dead, Phish, moe., String Cheese Incident, The Flecktones, Club d'Elf, ALO, Tea Leaf Green and Adrian Belew, Taj Mahal, Maria Muldaur, Tuvan throat singers, live painters, dancers, chanters, choirs, hula hoopers, firespinners, jugglers, stiltwalkers, storytellers, a presidential candidate and hundreds of others among a growing legion of other performers. Butler's version of breaking down the barriers between musician and audience derives in part from desert art festival Burning Man's 'no spectators, only participants' ethic and is undoubtedly influenced by his old friend and mentor Ken Kesey, the king of the Merry Pranksters. The Everyone Orchestra is dedicated to working for good and has performed numerous concerts for non-profit organizations, coordinated donation drives for the needy, and has brought their brand of participatory performance to student groups, schools, hospitals, an orphanage and more.

      Cost: 25.00 to 30.00
