Chamber Group Decoda Plays Poughkeepsie

Chamber music just seems to lend itself perfectly to the winter landscape. There’s something about its austere, often meditative qualities that plays really well off the icy scenery that comes with the season. If you’re a Hudson Valley dweller who feels the same you’re in luck, as on February 21 the exemplary New York chamber ensemble Decoda will perform a free concert at Vassar College.

At the show Decoda will present the world premiere of “Distractions,” a sextet written for the ensemble by composer Richard Wilson as well as works by Mozart, Brahms, Britten, and Hersant. Established in 2011, Decoda has appeared in Abu Dhabi, Iceland, Japan, Mexico, Germany, Hong Kong, Switzerland, and Denmark, and in the 2015 season will present projects with partners in the US, Mexico, Asia, and the United Kingdom. The group has held interactive shows with significant audience participation, workshops, and performance training workshops for high school students and is an affiliate ensemble of Carnegie Hall.

Decoda will perform on February 28 at 8pm at Vassar College’s Skinner Hall in Poughkeepsie. The concert is free. For more information, call (845) 437-5370 or visit http://www.vassar.edu.
