Daniela Bisenius and Don Stille
May 14, 8pm
The Second Saturday Coffeehouse is delighted to welcome back Daniela Bisenius after an absence of a mere two months...she's that good we wanted her back ASAP! Last month we enjoyed her classical and gypsy music, and she will be joinedon May 14th by her soulmate in music, Don Stille, for an extraordinary jazz performance.
About Daniela Bisenius: All About Jazz wrote “The duet with Daniela Bisenius leads to spotlighting the violinist’s agile fluidity that is part Paganini-inspired virtuosity and part Tsigan-esque pyrotechnics”. At 19 she became the youngest person ever to win a position with the Staatsphilharmonie Ludwigshafen, Germany. She has studied worldwide and performed as an orchestra member with many professional orchestras in Europe and in the US., and she has shared the stage with many international artists such as Natalie Cole, Luther Vandross, and Luciano Pavarotti. In 2010, Daniela played the fiddler in the sold out musical Always Patsy Cline. In spite of all the incredible accomplishments, her favorite thing to do remains teaching the violin.
About Don Stille: Chicago-based full-time performing jazz pianist, accordionist and Grammy Nominee, “Don Stille proves he is. . .an artist to be reckoned with,” says Howard Reich Music critic for the Chicago Tribune. “ . . .the fluidity of his technique, the depth of his tone and the intellectual sophistication of his improvisations firmly established him as an accomplished and polished artist.” Born in St. Louis, Missouri, a city rich in artistic and cultural diversity, Don began formal music instruction at the age of 5. Soon after, he expanded his musical palette by including studies in piano performance and composition. Since then he has gone on to perform throughout the country with a long list of nationally and internationally acclaimed jazz artists, and entertainers of stage, screen, studio and TV fame.
