Benefit Concert for the Oregon Coast Humane Society
July 30, 2016
$15 suggested at the door
Pianist/composer Dan Chadburn and singer/songwriter Tom Nichols will be making their third appearance at Kathy Parsons' MainlyPiano House Concert Series as a benefit for the Oregon Coast Humane Society. Their concerts are relaxed and informal and include a piano improvisation by Dan in each half. Dan is set to release his sixth instrumental album, Beyond Words, this summer. Each of his last three albums received significant radio airplay worldwide, charting in the Top 10 of Zone Music Reporter's monthly Top 100 charts.
Dan began studying classical piano at the age of nine and earned a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance from Pacific Lutheran University. After three national tours as a pianist and singer/songwriter, and the release of three contemporary christian albums in the 1980s, Dan settled in Los Angeles, where he scored music for television and worked as a pianist and studio musician. In 1993, he moved to London, where he earned a Masters of Music in ElectroAcoustic Composition. He returned to the U.S. in 1995 and has continued to perform and compose.
Tom released his first solo album (Trust) in 2011 and has produced the albums of many artists (including Dan) in the Washington, DC area. In addition to his work in music, Tom has had an active career in conservation and social justice issues. He is currently the Vice President of Finance and Operations for the Arcus Foundation in New York City.
