An n’ Pale | Café Conversation with Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR)
Feb 20, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us for a conversation with Daniel Bernard Roumain as we discuss his career and upcoming projects. This An n’ Pale will be followed by a special performance.
Daniel Bernard Roumain’s (DBR) acclaimed work as a composer and performer spans more than two decades, and has been commissioned by venerable artists and institutions worldwide. “About as omnivorous as a contemporary artists gets” (New York Times), DBR is perhaps the only composer whose collaborations traverse the worlds of Philip Glass, Bill T. Jones, Savion Glover and Lady Gaga. Known for his signature violin sounds infused with a myriad of electronic and urban music influences, DBR takes his genre-bending music beyond the proscenium.
DBR is currently working on We Shall Not Be Moved, a new chamber opera commissioned by Opera Philadelphia, Meditations for Raising Boys, a new oratorio commissioned by Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra, and BOUNCE: A Basketball Opera in 4 Quarters, commissioned by Ardea Arts.
