5/17: MusiCircus at OZ Arts Nashville

Conductor and percussionist Colleen Phelps is bringing together an eclectic mix of artists for OZ Arts Nashville’s MusiCircus, a community music event inspired by the “happenings” from John Cage in the ’60s and ’70s.

The event starts tonight at 7:00 p.m. and features scores of local musicians, authors, and performers of all stripes, including Vanderbilt Video Arts Students, The Porch Writers’ Collective, and Whites Creek High School DrumHeadz.

Tickets for the family-friendly event are available here.
