J Chen Project Presents SEASONS OF SOUNDS AND MOVEMENT
J CHEN PROJECT is thrilled to announce the premiere of an experimental live performance, Seasons of Sounds and Movement, part of the second annual Dancing Keys program commissioned by Natalia Huang Piano Studio.
This new work choreographed by Artistic Director Jessica Chen in collaboration with composer Chris DeAngelis is a 20-minute experimental dance performance with live, original piano and string quartet score featuring 8 piano students, ages 7-13, from Natalia Huang Piano Studio. Seasons of Sounds and Movement embodies different elements of the four seasons-it's complexity, history, beauty, and impact, to bring professional and aspiring young artists together to develop and perform work.
