Especially before the twentieth century, chamber music was frequently enjoyed outside concert halls, in private salons or at intimate social gatherings. These days, Tertulia Chamber Music is reinvigorating that idea — and with exhilarating effect — by embedding world-class musical performances within dinner parties held as private events at urban restaurants. On Sunday evening at Town Hall in San Francisco, Tertulia presented Decoda, a chamber group based in New York and honored by Carnegie Hall as its first official Affiliate Ensemble. Three culinary courses and two clarinet quintets made for a scrumptious, five-course feast.
15 teenagers and 11 NYPD officers from across NYC created original songs in workshops led by Decoda artists over eight weeks and performed side-by-side on December 20 in Carnegie Hall's Weill Music Room. The concert was embodied in the joint refrain, "More than a uniform...same as you".
The Decoda Cello Quartet is a part of the Decoda Ensemble, based in New York City. The members of The Decoda Cello Quartet are highly accomplished professional musicians who perform in a variety of groups, tour, and participate in community enrichment and educational projects. They presented a workshop on community engagement through music and arts on Friday, January 20 in Cadek Recital Hall.
The video shows The Decoda Cello Quartet performing for UTC students and the public. Claire Bryant, a cellist in the Decoda, talks about her experience while performing and how music can make an impact on the community.
UTC senior Jonathan Bartholomew found the experience eye opening, saying, “This actually really opened my mind to a lot of more ideas about composing, as well as what I can do with music both socially and privately and just how I can open to the world with music and get everybody united.”
WIS News 10, Columbia, SC: January 24th, 2017 CAMDEN, SC (WIS) – They’re Juilliard-trained and Carnegie Hall approved, but they spent some time in a non-traditional concert hall this week. The Decoda Cello Quartet is a part of the New York-based “Decoda Chamber,” a collective aimed at bringing music to everyone.
The quartet made a stop at Pine Tree Hill Elementary School in Kershaw County on Monday to share their passion for music with teachers and students at the school.
“We believe everybody should have the same accessibility to be able to interact with music that we love,” said Decoda member Claire Bryant.
Bryant, a native of Camden, SC, says she wants to bring the same music that they play at Carnegie Hall to community venues like public schools. The group also paid a visit to Lee Correctional Institution on Tuesday. To read full article click here.
