"Returning for the third time by popular demand. Chamber music meets improv theatre meets free jazz in this unique evening of audience-directed musical improvisation. Eight musicians from the orchestra will improvise an entire evening of music. No script, no safety net. Just the musicians and the audience and a set of musical games. A highly-entertaining evening of laughs, musical mayhem and mystery multimedia."

The skill-testing questions was "Tell us a few details about one of the other concerts that Ottawa Jazz Orchestra is presenting this season, and its date." An answer (many were possible) could be found at, where you can also purchase tickets for "Whose Solo Is It Anyway?" and the other concerts in the season.
