This event occurs weekly, on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday.


Bring your own musical story to life in free composition workshops with the PRISM Quartet, Susie Ibarra and Tyshawn Sorey at the Free Library of Philadelphia

Want to write music for saxophones and percussion? Unlocking Your Inner Composer is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to collaborate with virtuoso musicians in residence at the Free Library. The PRISM Quartet, a world-renowned all-sax ensemble, is joining forces with two groundbreaking composer/percussionists— Susie Ibarra and Tyshawn Sorey— in a series of free workshops at the Parkway Central Library and Joseph E. Coleman Northwest Philadelphia Regional Library.

Workshops are open to teens and adults at all levels, whether you have no musical training or are a pro in search of new techniques and challenges. You don’t need to know how to read music to join in the fun. Workshops will culminate in performances of participants’ compositions by PRISM, Ibarra, and Sorey. Want to perform your music with the artists? Bring your own instrument or borrow one from the Parkway Central Library music department. Space is limited, so sign up now!
