Latitude Ensemble welcomes guest artist Fitch to improv performance Dec. 6

The Latitude Ensemble, an improvisational chamber music ensemble of faculty and students in the University of Iowa School of Music, will welcome singer/actor/dancer Kimberly Fitch to a free performance at 8 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 6, in the University Capitol Centre Recital Hall.

Since moving to Iowa six years ago, Fitch has been a soloist with the Des Moines Symphony for the Beethoven Ninth Symphony and the “Lord of the Rings” Symphony. She has been a frequent guest artist with the Westminster Arts Series, in works including the Mozart Requiem and John Tavener’s “Lamentations and Praises.”

She also operates an organic farm in southern Iowa, where she rescues thoroughbred racehorses. Learn more about her at

Led by faculty members Jeffrey Agrell and John Manning, the Latitude Ensemble sometimes creates instant compositions with Soundpainting, a well-developed system of gestures that directs and molds improvisational performances. Audience members should expect the unexpected, including being asked to contribute to the live performance in various ways.
