February, 21, 2014 — Syrian-born clarinetist Kinan Azmeh, a performer who has been called “spellbinding” by The New Yorker and “virtuoso…intensely soulful” by the New York Times, strives to reach a balance between classical, jazz and the music of his homeland.

February 5, 2014 - Lewis Whittington of The Dance Journal reviews our February 2 ClassicAlive concert featuring cellist Gabriel Cabezas and dancer Chloe Felesina. "[The] performance proved an adventurous and frequently electric up close and personal collaboration."
January 20, 2014 - Cellist Yo-Yo Ma and hip-hop dancer Lil Buck got audiences talking in 2011 when they performed a dance-music interpretation of Camille Saint-Saën’s “The Swan.” In LiveConnections’ February 2nd concert, cellist Gabriel Cabezas — a sometimes-collaborator with Yo-Yo Ma — will take his mentor’s lead in a pas de deux between cello and BalletX dancer Chloe Felesina. We caught up with Gabe to hear why this Curtis Institute of Music grad was committed to pursuing performance opportunities outside of the traditional concert hall.
January 20, 2014 - BalletX’s Chloe Felesina will be taking a one-day hiatus from her work preparing for the company’s upcoming Winter Series 2014 to perform a musical pas de deux with cellist Gabriel Cabezas. Presented by music nonprofit LiveConnections, the performance on February 2nd at World Cafe Live will feature both improvised and choreographed works danced to the live accompaniment of Cabezas’ cello. We took a look behind the scenes to ask Chloe what it’s like to work with a live musician, and how she feels about the sometimes-improvised program.
