This open rehearsal is a chance to catch Ron and SymphRONica right before they perform a concert that will then become their next recording. It will be an informal performance, with stops and starts, a front row seat to the musical creative process in the beautiful and intimate setting of Gallery 345.

On the heels of a critically acclaimed ("4 Stars!", "[The] reinvention of jazz for modern ears") three-week run at world's largest arts festival, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Ron Davis and his genre-defying, boundary-pushing 8-piece group SymphRONica are wasting no time before launching a new season of concerts (their seventh), and a new recording (Ron's 13th).

SymphRONica isn't jazz with classical accompaniment or jazzed-up classical music. It's tuneful, inventive music with big grooves and melodies the leaves audiences moved, excited and humming. SymphRONica captures original compositions, newly reinvigorated jazz standards and world melodies with energy, pizzazz and groove that explore new musical realms across a journey of enjoyment. It’s rich, it’s substantial and above all it’s entertaining, presented with wit, wisdom and irreverence by the classically trained jazz adventurer, Ron Davis.

Some critical reactions to SymphRONica:

“Ron Davis’ SymphRONica is truly an ensemble like no other. Energetic, virtuosic, charming, worldly … excitingly unpredictable and fresh… virtuosity and drive …” - WholeNote

“Superb (SymphRONica)” - The Royal Philharmonic Society, UK

“Four Stars… wonderfully wayward eclecticism… sumptuously floating … deftly ranging keyboard work … a wonderful excursion … a pulsing, slamming drive … enjoyably intimate, salon vibe.” – The Scotsman

“Not like anything else out there. …Your mind will be blown … a sound which truly represents modern jazz music!” – OrcaSound

“No wonder he’s been called “one of the great minds in Jazz” by JazzFM and “an innovative force within the world of Jazz” by The National Post.” – TorontoMoon
