Chris Chalfant

CHRIS CHALFANT - PRODUCER, DIRECTOR COMPOSER, ALTO (VOICE), PIANO

In 2001 I Founded the Lifetime Visions Orchestra which I co-direct with Joseph Jarman. The LVO recently returned from performing at the Nancy (France) Pulsations Jazz Festival with great acclaim from Les Republican. I have directed the American Women Composers Marathon (Boston), and the Festival of Women Improvisors - Boston. I have been composing award-winning music since age 16, including “Portraits” for the Louisville National Composers Competition (Merit Finalist). I have written extensively for many different instrumental and vocal combinations, as well as poetry, theatre, dance, live painting and multimedia. From 1986-1992 I was pianist and singer for the Longy Improvisation Ensemble. My work in the 80's was greatly influenced from the work of Meredith Monk and my workshop experience with Pauline Oliveros. In 1992, I was fortunate to have a residency at the Atlantic Center with Joan LaBarbara and Morton Subotnick.
