The Merseyside Improvisors Orchestra are looking for instrumental musicians to take part in a celebration of Sgt Pepper at 50 organised by The John Cage Trust.

Sunday 4th June, Liverpool. Aintree racecourse.

Any instruments will be great but especially brass and woodwind, strings. Also drummers needed.

No rehearsal, just turn up on the day and do it. A simple arrangement will be given of the tunes.

We’re playing 2 tunes, Tomorrow Never Knows and Dear Prudence.

Extended jamming and a joyful noise will be made.
