Rafael Piccolotto de Lima Chamber Project unites world class musicians with diverse backgrounds to explore the musical possibilities between jazz, classical and Brazilian music.
The Latin Grammy Nominated composer and conductor leads the New York City based ensemble to present award winning original compositions and arrangements.
The unusual instrumentation of this project, including a string session, jazz winds and a Brazilian rhythm section allows the composer to explore unique music soundscapes.
Creative orchestrations serve as a platform to feature soloists like John Raymond (trumpet), Hadar Noiberg (flute) and Vitor Gonçalves (accordion).
The CHAMBER PROJECT is flexible in its size and instrumentation to be presentable in intimate venues as well as in big concert halls. While the reduced version is comprised of 12 musicians, the full ensemble has 23 members.
Our premiere happened on April 9th, 2017 at Rockwood Music Hall in Manhattan, New York. See videos above.
Other concerts include the large ensemble series at Sir D's Lounge, and a show at Shapeshifter Lab, both in Brooklyn (NYC).
