RiverArts® to Present Percussionist Evan Chapman in Second Installment of New Music Series

Channels is a three-concert music series that defies boundaries and celebrates the river as a means of travel, exploration, and a source of new ideas. The mission of this concert series is to bring together artists and audiences in the spirit of connectivity and discovery. This series kicked off this past fall with a sold-out performance by the duo, Sky Creature, at Purpl in Hastings-on-Hudson.

Chapman will be presenting a program of brand-new percussion-driven compositions that are the culmination of a vast musical background, drawing elements from contemporary-classical, post-rock, electronic, post- minimalist, ambient, and pop in ways that are genre-defying and adventurous, yet emotive and lyrical.

Chapman is excited to perform parts of Irvington-based composer Robert Honstein’s Economy of Means. Honstein is celebrated for his “waves of colorful sounds” (New York Times) and “smart, appealing works” (The New Yorker).

Channels is produced by RiverArts Board Member Stuart Wolferman who shares, “Evan is such a thoughtful and creative artist. I’ve seen him as part of the post-rock trio Square Peg Round Hole, and I’m really excited for this solo show. I also think it’s especially cool to be putting together the first concert in this amazing penthouse space that HudCo is getting off the ground.”

Josh Suniewick, Executive Director of RiverArts says, “We’re so excited to be presenting our second concert in this three-concert series. The Channels series has proven to be a great way to bring new artists to our community and connect residents through new arts experiences. I hope folks will join RiverArts in welcoming Evan to Dobbs Ferry.”

Robert Honstein shares this sentiment, “It’s a special thrill to have Evan play selections of Economy of Means so close to home. First, because I so rarely have the chance to share my music with the local crowd, but second because Evan is an old friend and cherished collaborator. For Channels, I’m excited to hear Evan’s personal take on this soft, shimmering, music for prepared vibraphone, including some new elements of his own that will bring a little extra glow to the sound.”
