Daniel Kelly - Rakonto
Composer/pianist Daniel Kelly transforms the stories of everyday people into dramatic and compelling music that blends jazz, classical, and folk music into a signature sound.
This unique multi-media performance has been specially created right here in Westchester for family audiences. Recorded interviews with local students seamlessly blend with stunning, original compositions performed by Kelly’s band of world-class musicians.
“The goal is to honor the stories of each unique individual, while at the same time celebrating our similarities through music. I see my mission in this project as fostering compassion between us as citizens. That by hearing someone’s life story and point of view, we may all be more understanding with one another.”
