Cellist and conductor Chris Wild has performed in concert halls throughout North America and Europe and in broadcasts on CTV National News (Canada) and classical radio stations WQXR (New York) and WFMT (Chicago). His debut cello album, Abhanden, is described by New Music Box as "a virtuosic tour-de-force for solo cello... Wild's approach to the material is soaring, lyrical, and bold...confirms that Wild is not only an exciting performer to watch, but also a wise programmer and collaborator." An avid interpreter of new music, Chris is currently Artistic Coordinator and Cellist for Ensemble Dal Niente, a Chicago-based collective of "super-musicians" (Chicago Tribune). In addition to their local concert series, Dal Niente has performed in concert halls and universities throughout North America, Central America, and Europe. Chris has also performed classical and contemporary music as a soloist with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra (Canada), Third Coast Percussion (Chicago), Experimental Sound Studio SWR (Germany) and University of Michigan Philharmonia Orchestra.
