MEET THE COMPOSER
Balancing the extremes of the familiar and the experimental, music by Ryan Chase (b. 1987) has been described as "the stuff of memory" (The Herald-Times) and hailed by the New York Times as a "whirlwind of deftly explored contrasts of mood, from bombastic to introverted." Though sonically diverse, his body of work is unified by a fascination with virtuosity and an affirmation of melody.

ERIE CANAL FACT:
Baldwinsville's history as a canal community predates the Erie Canal by almost a decade. In 1839 the Baldwin Canal would officially connect with the Erie Canal making it easier and cheaper for Agricultural businesses in the region to ship and distribute their goods.
