Miranda Ferris Jones , a Bay Area musician, is a unique and adventurous talent. Working with Bob Weir (of Rat Dog and The Grateful Dead), Jones is recording a collection of songs that are both an album and a performance piece. "The Precipice" combines a mesmerizing theatrical script with her dark, whimsical jazz/cabaret style.

Following our initial documentary video for "The Precipice," Panhandle Productions returned to TRI Studios in 2012 to create a new video tracking the progress of the show. The most recent milestone: a theatrical Workshop showing off the latest musical numbers. In one day, approximately a dozen performers came together to improvise a remarkable performance of The Precipice's most exciting new material. Watch below to see the inspiring progress of the show happen right before your very eyes. (editor: Abby Berendt Lavoi)

Awesöme Orchestra Collective is a Bay Area original. Founded by conductor David Möschler in the spring of 2013, the group holds regular open orchestra rehearsals, called "sessions," at various non-traditional rehearsal spaces. The goal of Awesome Orchestra is to break down the barriers of traditional orchestra and include a wide community in ongoing musical adventures. The diverse group totals over 300 musicians around the Bay Area who are passionate about the power of orchestra and the open democratic music-making experience. Although the group is totally open, musical standards are maintained by encouraging members to honestly judge their own abilities and to take time for extra practice if they can not keep up with the pace of the group. Awesome Orchestra has performed throughout the Bay Area from locations such as the De Young Museum to spontaneous BART station flash mobs. (Camera by Louise Mitchell and Andrew Nixon).
