About the speaker
Born in 1943 in Phœnix Arizona, Garrett List is a composer, musician and music educator. Receiving his degree from the renowned Juilliard School of Music, he left his footprint on the New York musical scene as a trombonist and an upstart composer from 1965 - 1980.
Upon coming to Belgium, he created the Classe d'improvisation at the Royal Conservatory of Liège. Today, through the Orchestra ViVo!, he has dedicated himself to the creation of a new music. This ambitious project with its innovating and unifying character, is the logical follow up of List’s search for new ways to bring people in harmony through music.
