concert schedule 2009-10

October

Faculty Recital: "An Evening of Spontaneous Beauty"
Dan DeChellis, jazz piano; Gary Hassay, saxophone; Tatsuya Nakatani, percussion

Friday, October 02, 2009 – 7:30 PM
Foy Concert Hall – Hurd Campus, Moravian College

Admission: $15 general admission / $10 seniors & students

The DeChellis "Hassay" Nakatani Trio perform purely improvised music that draws from everything and nothing all at the same time. They each have very distinct voices and styles, yet allow each other to wrestle themselves into unfamiliar territory creating spontaneous works of music that excite and inspire any audience. They are intense and bombastic at once and suddenly hushed and delicate the next. Their years of collective improvising experience has allowed them to develop the ability to 'turn on a dime' at any given moment. This is a concert that should be experienced with open minds and open ears.
