The Matt and Atla DeChamplain Quartet
Whitney Center for the Arts, 42 Wendell Ave., Pittsfield, Mass.
We are pleased to announce “Ten Approaches to Love and Life,” a Valentine’s weekend performance by the Matt and Atla DeChamplain Quartet.
One of the Berkshires’ favorite vocalists, Atla returns with a wide-ranging repertoire that focuses on various avenues (perhaps “adventures” would say it better) of love. From fascinating to flirting, from courting to marriage to family and who-knows-what, Atla brings unique vocal stylings to our stage. She will be accompanied by her equally amazing pianist –her husband Matt– and their group. Rounding out the band are Matt Dwonszyk on bass and Tony Davis on drums. A veritable who’s-who of New England jazz talent.
When the calendar says February, many thoughts turn to Pittsfield’s popular “10×10 Upstreet Arts Festival,” which will take place Feb. 14-24. We know…that’s 11 days, but the first day is a bonus. This special program is our contribution to the festivities, and given the date, it’s logical to have a Valentine theme. The band’s setup –piano, bass, guitar and voice—is perfect for the warm acoustics of the Whitney Center for the Arts, the home of so many creative performance events.
Since their sold-out performance at Flavours two years ago, fans have been clamoring to bring Matt and Atla back, and we’re delighted to present them on Feb. 16 in this new setting.
Come, enjoy the adventure. Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 on the day of the event. A limited tapas menu and cash bar will be available. Seating is limited, don’t miss out.
