Planet Arts Receives a National Endowment for the Arts Grant
Planet Arts in collaboration with the Creative Music Foundation (CMF) has received an NEA grant to preserve the recorded archive of the legendary Creative Music Studio (CMS). The archive is a collection of live recordings of the world-renowned CMS performance programs. During the '70- and '80's, the Woodstock-based Creative Music Studio was considered the premier study center for contemporary creative music. Founded in 1971 by Karl Berger, Ingrid Sertso and Ornette Coleman, CMS brought together leading innovators in the jazz and world music communities.
