David Chesky - Director / Writer / Composer / Producer
David Chesky, a three-time Grammy nominee, was composer-in-residence for the National Symphony Orchestra of Taiwan. David's works span both jazz and classical genres, and have earned him the distinction of being the only jazz composer ever to be nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best Contemporary Classical Composition. His operas, ballets, and orchestral works have been performed all around the world. David has developed his own unique style of composition he calls Urban Orchestral. This music emanates from the sounds he hears on the streets of New York. Also a pianist, David performs with the Grammy-nominated group Jazz in the New Harmonic, an ensemble that performs a mixture of jazz and pan-tonal contemporary classical works. In addition to working with major classical orchestras, David has performed at the world-famous jazz club The Village Vanguard, as well as the Newport, JVC, and Monterey Jazz Festivals. Besides being a musician and composer, David is also known worldwide as one of the leaders in the advancement of technological research on high-resolution recording techniques. He has produced hundreds of classical and jazz albums from artists as diverse as Peggy Lee, Astor Piazzolla, McCoy Tyner, Macy Gray, The Royal Philharmonic, and the classical pianist Earl Wild.
