ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Trinity Alps Chamber Players are dedicated to providing exceptional and accessible chamber music performances, bringing classical and contemporary chamber music alive to younger generations through education and outreach performances. The organization presents an annual summer festival in Trinity County, and regular seasonal events across California. Since its inception, this organization has presented over 60 public concerts and 25 educational programs at summer camps, schools, and public venues. It has had an evolving roster of almost 50 professional musicians to date, who hail from across the US and Europe.
Composer Danny Clay has an impressive history of working with children, and his compositions have attracted numerous awards and performances by world-renowned groups.
As a globally acclaimed player of the ancient Australian Aboriginal didgeridoo, San Francisco based multi-instrumentalist/composer Stephen Kent has pioneered its use in contemporary music across the globe for over 3 decades. As a solo performer he is a virtual one-man-band, producing an extraordinary layering of sounds and grooves and creating an almost orchestral ambience with this primal instrument, accompanying himself on all kinds of shakers and hand percussion on musical journeys that travel deep into the heart of the earth. A dynamic performer and storyteller to boot he revels in inviting the audience in on the journey. www.stephenkent.net
