Faces of the Sun by Chase Dobson for violin, horn, and piano

            Je Ne T’aime Pas by Kurt Weill for voice and piano

            The Swan by Camille Saint-Saëns for cello and piano

Earlier this year, Chase Dobson was named Avant Chamber Ballet’s composer-in-residence. His first commission with the ballet, Faces of the Sun, premiered in June 2013. For more information about Avant Chamber Ballet, visit www.avantchamberballet.org.
