Michael Chapdelaine underwent some major transformations since he first started performing in Los Alamos.
“I’ve been making some serious transitions in my personal life and they’ve brought out some sorrow, anger, relief and bliss … it’s pretty heavy stuff,” he said.
These changes have given a whole new meaning to his music. Now, Chapdelaine said, when he writes a song about leaving, it really means something; and now songs about emancipation and optimism really mean something.
He added, “It allows people in the audience into my world more than when I was younger.”
Also as he has gotten older, Chapdelaine’s performances have incorporated a boarder range of music.
During his early performances with the Los Alamos Concert Association, Chapdelaine offered straight classical music.
Today, Chapdelaine said, “I don’t have any barriers, which is the way an artist is suppose to be.”
His performances offer everything from classical to pop music.
Widening his repertoire is partly due to listeners’ change in taste.
As a young musician, he saw classical music play a significant role in the music world but now it seems all those many chambers and symphonies have vanished, he said.
