Oberlin-based Bassoon Virtuoso Dana Jessen releases album

Dana Jessen, who has performed locally for the Cleveland Uncommon Sound Project and the New Ghosts Series, has released a new album titled Winter Chapel. The album was recorded in Oberlin's Fairchild Chapel and "explores the physicality of sound through improvisations that are informed by a resonant acoustic space".
