Dana Leong Trio

Peace Concert Hall

The Dana Leong Trio is three musicians putting a modern, high-def spin on classic sounds. Dana Leong brings the cello, synth and vocals, Lex Sadler is on the bass and electronics and Val-Inc keeps it all in time from behind his turntables. It’s a high-energy concert made for music-lovers, blending jazz, classical and pop to create a signature boundless sound.

Often referred to as a "hi-def Yo-Yo Ma," Dana Leong’s pioneering collage of musical styles has garnered critical acclaim and wowed audiences around the world, especially students.  

The program will include original works from Dana Leong's newest album "Dream State" as well the Trio's brand of Cello Electronica remixes of legendary artists such as Sam Cooke, Bjork and Maurice Ravel. 

“Dana’s inventive presentations on music, technology, and creativity always draw the largest, most diverse crowds from our student body, who are eager to participate in his unique, innovative, and highly interactive sessions. He gives our students an exciting modern perspective on music that no other Visiting Artist can.”
-Keisuke Hoashi, New York Summer Music Festival
