World Citizens Music’s purpose is to revitalise and restore the sense of musical creation in today’s world.
Originating from Phoenix, Arizona, Garrett List is a composer, performer and teacher. Graduated from the prestigious Juilliard School of Music (New York), he left his trombonist’s mark on New-York’s musical life from 1965 to 1980. He arrived then in Belgium where he created and led, at Henri Pousseur’s request, the improvisation class at the Royal Conservatory of Liège, continuing that leadership for the next thirty years.
In 2006, he founded World Citizens Music, setting not only the mission to promote his art, but also to aid and support the great number and often younger artists with whom he enjoys working.
Garrett List. Music and the Future, a two-part biography written by Bernard Legros and based on a few interviews, is published in late 2014. The book is about his itinerary, but also his conception of teaching and his thoughts about music.
Today, Garrett List dedicates himself to the creation of a new type of music, through the Orchestra ViVo !. It’s the materialization of an ambitious and innovative artistic project which takes place into a collective thought about our time.
2014 is the year of the first album for Orchestra ViVo!, an album published by Igloo Records. It contains 9 original compositions that were never released until then.
