Big City Orchestra will present a unique version of "In A Persian Market" by composer British Albert William Ketèlbey in 1920 inspired by Johann Strauss II's Composition "Persischer Marschof " which was very popular with theater orchestras and in sheet music form, and was followed by other similar exotic compositions such as "In a Chinese Temple Garden," and "In a Monastery Garden" were very popular with theater orchestras and in sheet music form. Although this type of music is now out of style, it was well considered at the time - Albert Ketelby was in some ways the last of a line that included Johann Strauss and Franz Lehar. Big City Orchestra is a long-running art/anti-art group based in California. They have an ever rotating cast of musician and nonmusician members. They were formed in 1979 as the house band for a network of artist residences. Almost comedically prolific, BCO sailed through the cassette culture movement of the 1980s and 1990s with about 130 hour-long releases on over 100 labels. They have been creating and composing what can be crudely described as ideational noise installation art symphonies. . While BCO has promised nothing, the collective has suggested readings from The Collected Works of Od McUb might take place and new BCO puppets will be in full effect.

The 15th Annual Outsound New Music Summit is dedicated to the life and legacy of creative powerhouse saxophonist Marco Eneidi.

Funding for the 15th Annual Outsound New Music Summit is made possible through the Musical Grant Program,which is administered by the San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music, and supported by the Heller Foundation, the Hewlett Foundation, the San Francisco Foundation and San Francisco Grants for the Arts.
