Never Enough Hope: Small Group Improvisations
After two consecutive shows at AV-aerie (Friday and Saturday night Feb. 29th and March 1st), Toby Summerfield's Never Enough Hope will break down into small groups and perform ad hoc improvisations at Heaven Gallery!
Never Enough Hope is a very large ensemble put together every so often by Toby Summerfield. The first never enough hope performances were in 2005, at Open End and at The hungry brain. The piece, also titled "never enough hope" is their debut recording. Their hope is to be able to perform more regularly than every two years. The inspiration and motiviation behind this band is to celebrate the friendship and community particular to musicians and music lovers. It is the sound of a bunch of friends singing together, happy to be around each other, doing what they love.
