About this project

I was privileged to grow up in house filled with music –beautiful, original music played by my dad on his piano. Christophe Delvallé is his name, and he has been an amazing composer of jazz and slow music. His music is emotional, and so much can be said about it. But instead of describing it to you, I'll let you discover it on your own: http://delvalle.fr/music/index.html

As we all know, listening to music online is one thing, listening to it live, as we witness the fingers of the professional skillfully moving, is another. Sometimes, I take the privilege of seeing my dad play for granted, and then I'm reminded that it's not the case of all people. That's when I feel enthusiastic to get him to share it with everybody else.

While he's already given many concerts in France and Greece, he's never given one in the US, where I live. I know the interest is here. I know so many who love his music here, and so many more who'd love to discover it! So here we go, raising money to fund the flight for him to come and delight Vermonters in Burlington or the area (where I live now), and all who want to make the drive for that treat!

If all works out –which also involves finding a place with a piano and the space for guests (someone's house is perfect!)– the concert will be held in August 2017 (most likely within the first two weeks), in the Burlington, VT area.

If there is even more interest, there can also be multiple concerts!

Risks and challenges

Basically, unless we raise enough funds to pay for my father's trip expenses, it's unlikely the concert is going to happen. We also need to find a place that can host 20 to 50 guests and has a piano. A house with a big living room will do!

Once we have the space, piano to use, and funds, it's a go!
