On the heels of this summer's successful i.e.* launch event comes a whole new way of looking at things -- SHOP CLASS, a FREE, six-week intentional mashup of innovative thinkers, innovative doers and curious bystanders.

SHOP CLASS is designed to take the ambitions of i.e.* one step further, blurring the lines between creator and creative minded.

Organized and hosted by Peter Fraser, Ansel Olson and John Sarvay, SHOP CLASS is a two-hour, hands-on discovery zone centered in the historic Marvin Lang Building (next to the Camel on West Broad Street).


a free i.e.* sanctioned event
Thursday, August 18 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.


Composer and orchestrator Samson Trinh will bring the stylings of his Upper East Side Big Band to Marvin Lang as he engaged the SHOP CLASS crowd in an exploration of music innovation anchored around his approach of reconfiguring contemporary rock music in big band style.

(Samson's Mills Family Band is performing at The Camel after SHOP CLASS.)


*SHOP CLASS is a free event! Because of space limitations, we're asking that participants attend no more than two of the six sessions.
