Dan DeChellis Chamber Ensemble to Perform at Moravian College

Bethlehem, Pa., August 30, 2007—Moravian College will host a concert by the Dan DeChellis Chamber Ensemble on Sunday, September 16 at 4:00 p.m. in Foy Concert Hall, located in the Priscilla Payne Hurd Campus for Music and Art, Main and Church Streets in Historic Bethlehem. The ensemble performs improvised chamber music with composer Dan DeChellis on piano, Anita DeChellis, vocalist, Katt Hernandez, violin, and Matt Hannafin, percussion.

DeChellis founded his own record label, Sachimay Records in 1996, and the Dan DeChellis Chamber Ensemble was formed in 2000 with the release of Chamber Music on Sachimay Records. He has been an active member of the Boston and New York Improv scene, and one of the founding members of the Improvised and Otherwise Festival in New York. 

The ensemble performs improvised chamber music for piano, voice, violin and percussion, that blurs the line between contemporary classical and improvised music, rendering masterfully combined standard piano virtuosity with extended technique and explosive bursts of energy.
