      Composer Marc Mellits and the Mellits Consort pound out an afternoon's worth
      of hypnotic, hard driving, and at times, heart stoppingly beautiful new
      music. Inspired by the streets of New York as well as the mountains of
      Transylvania, Mellits' music has been called "...as sensual as it was
      intelligent; I saw audience members swaying, nodding, making little motions
      with their hands." (New York Press). The performance will consist of old
      hits and as well as new pieces for his ensemble. Featuring Dominic
      Frasca <http://www.guitardeviations.com/> -electric guitar, Danny
      Tunick -marimba, Cristina Buciu -violin,
      Elizabeth Simkin -cello, and Mellits on keyboard.

      Born in the United States, in Baltimore, Maryland, Marc Mellits has studied
      at the Eastman School of Music, Yale School of Music, Cornell University,
      and Tanglewood. His teachers have included Samuel Adler, Martin Bresnick,
      Jacob Druckman, Dominic Frasca, Bernard Rands, Christopher Rouse, Joseph
      Schwantner, Roberto Sierra, and Steven Stucky. Mellits' music has been
      widely preformed throughout the United States & Canada, as well as Europe.
      Mellits' music is visceral, often making a deep connection with the
      audience. His recent commissions include pieces for internationally
      acclaimed artists such as the Kronos String Quartet, Bang On A Can
      All-Stars, Sergio and Odair Assad, and Eliot Fisk, as well as the Albany
      Symphony's Dog's Of Desire, the Orchestra Dancing In Your Head, Dominic
      Frasca, American Baroque, Lelabo (Paris), Manhattan New Music Project, New
      Millennium Ensemble, Roberto Limon, and the Meridian Arts Ensemble. He is
      also a founding member of the acclaimed Common Sense Composer's Collective,
      which seeks new and alternative ways of collaborating with performance
      ensembles. Mellits is also the artistic director of his own unique
      ensemble, the MELLITS CONSORT. On CD, Mellits' music can be found on
      CRI/Emergency Music and Koch. Marc Mellits lives in New York City.
