Gabriel Cabezas and Chloe Felesina

Media Title

Sensational young cellist Gabriel Cabezas and dancer Chloe Felesina are looking to reinvent the way performance art is enjoyed and explored. Through their inventive collaboration, this gifted pair combine the established grace of classical music and ballet’s rigors with the spontaneity of improvisation and interpretation. Part of the goal of LiveConnections’ breathtaking ClassicAlive concert series, which includes this production, is to push the boundaries of classical music and attract new audiences; if this night’s any indication of what’s to come, ready your datebook.

Cabezas, originally from Chicago, studied at the illustrious Curtis Institute of Music in Rittenhouse Square and made his world debut with the Cleveland Orchestra when he was only 15 years old. From then on, his soloist credits boast the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the National Symphony Orchestra of Costa Rica, the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, the New World Symphony, and a host of other prestigious ensembles. A member of Philadelphia’s groundbreaking BalletX, Felesina received her primary training on the West coast from the Deane Dance Center and San Francisco Conservatory of Dance before joining the Sacramento Ballet. She moved on to develop a unique talent for contemporary collaboration, including improvising outdoors routines and working with poets.

Together, Cabezas and Felesina are pushing the boundaries of what’s considered traditional while putting a fresh spin on timeless classics. Whether you’re a seasoned ballet veteran, have season tickets to the Philadelphia Orchestra or are new to either scene, this brunch-time outing’s for you. / KENNEDY ALLEN
