UW Music and the Improvised Music Project (IMP) present IMPFest VIII June 2 through 4, 2015 at the Meany Studio Theater.

Over the past eight years the student-led Improvised Music Project has instigated new directions in Seattle’s jazz and improvised music scene. The annual festival, which pairs up-and-coming musicians with seasoned professionals of international renown, is IMP’s signature annual event.

This year, IMP and the School of Music welcome renowned guitarist and UW faculty member Bill Frisell, and special guests bassist Reid Anderson (Bad Plus) and tenor saxophonist Bill McHenry, performing with UW students and a faculty house band featuring Jazz Studies faculty and others.
