World Improvisional Music Day
3rd Sundays of November starting 18th November 2018
Berlin Improvisions is taking the initiative of launching this first Improvisional Music Day to set a landmark of events from noon to midnight in Berlin. Musicians and dancers of all nations are invited to join and share their improvisions via social media as well as WIA TV.
We are organising this first WIMD in the Meistersaall at Potsdamer Platz. This hall provides the genuine advantage of being technologically connected to the Emil Berliner Studios one floor below! The highest quality sound and video recording will thus result from the 8 concerts previewed during the day.

you will also notice our photographer Holger Pelzer from the back.
