Public Reception Honors Saxophonist Thomas Chapin
(Published: December 06, 2012)

December 03, 2012|By OWEN McNALLY, Special To The Courant, The Hartford Courant

Although Thomas Chapin, a phenomenal saxophonist, flutist and composer from Manchester, died in his prime when he was only 40 in 1998, his rich musical legacy lives on in the international world of the jazz avant-garde.
In Chapin's honor, a free public reception will be held Tuesday, Dec. 11, from 4 to 6 p.m. at Real Art Ways, 56 Arbor St., Hartford, a gathering that both celebrates the release of "Never Let Me Go," 3-CD collection of his live quartet performances from 1995-1996, and marks the announcement of the launching of a documentary film project on his life and art.
The reception is hosted by Chapin's widow, Terri Castillo-Chapin, of New York City, his pillar of support during his heroic battle with leukemia, and Terri's sister, the Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Stephanie J. Castillo. Already titled "Night Bird Song: The Thomas Chapin Story," the work will mark the 10th documentary by Stephanie Castillo, a former newspaper journalist from Hawaii.
A seven-minute fund-raising trailer about the documentary project will be shown. The trailer will be used to garner financial support for the proposed project from foundations and grant funders as well as to help launch a global fundraising campaign at kickstarter.com, an online site artists use to help fund their creative projects. To raise funding needed to begin filming, the Thomas Chapin film project begins its two-month Kickstarter campaign Feb. 13, the 15th anniversary of Chapin's death. To benefit the project, the new CD will be sold for $30 at the reception. Any donations for the film will also be accepted. Information: 808-383-7393.
