Pianist Carla McElhany and cellist Joel Becktell formed Revel in 2008 in an effort to re-introduce informal musical events in a style that they believe their musical heroes, including Brahms, Rachmaninov, and Piazzolla, would appreciate. Violinist Cármelo de los Santos joined them in 2010, and they soon began collaborating in concert with other musicians. Their focus is on sharing and celebrating great music, and their performances are truly inspiring and audience-pleasing. Revel brings a unique classical music experience to the community, sharing and celebrating great music while providing exceptional entertainment.
You can catch them at the Revel Solstice Festival, three intimate evenings of evenings of thrilling chamber music, from June 20-22. The band also brought their inimitable style of classical music to our own studio 1A on June 19th, at 11am, so be sure to take a listen below!
