Regular CI events in Philly (as of Spring 2022)

  • CI activities are starting up again following pandemic, but we are not yet back at full steam. Watch this space (or, better, join the mailing list) for news as things develop!

    Info and registration
  • Underscore
    Dates and times vary (look for announcements on the mailing list or visit the Philadelphia Underscore Facebook Page), but we hold Underscore roughly monthly, usually on Saturday afternoon. A talkthrough is available prior to each jam to familiarize participants with the structure of the score: participants who have not done the Underscore before should plan to attend the talkthrough.
