Student Spotlight!

Dennis Belisle's graduate recital is coming up on November 15th and 8 PM, featuring several members of the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra.

Born in Corpus Christi, Texas, into a military family, Dennis moved around frequently until settling down in Jacksonville, Fl at age 10. After graduating Orange Park High School, Dennis attended Jacksonville Conservatory of Music on full scholarship for piano and organ performance from 1986-89 and the University of North Florida jazz program for a year in 1989.
For over 25 years, Dennis has enjoyed a successful career, performing throughout the United States and abroad, in particular as the CEO/Road Manager and performer with The Websters, a highly successful corporate music group based in Cincinnati, OH. For 15 years, Dennis had the pleasure of performing for multiple Fortune 500 companies as well as two Ohio Governor Inaugurations. During this time, Dennis co-founded a private teaching school, Belisle Music Academy, as well as serving as Music Minister for Eden Chapel UMC.
In 2015, Dennis made the decision to return to college and enrolled at the University of Tennessee to complete his BM in Sacred Music. He graduated summa cm laude as well as being awarded Outstanding Senior in Sacred Music. Dennis continued his studies at the university and in December 2019, he will be graduating with an MM in Composition as well as earning his Theory Pedagogy Certificate. Dennis is excited to begin a whole new chapter in his music career as a composer and collegiate educator.
Dennis is currently the Music Director for Rio Revolution, a non-denominational church in Maryville, TN.

First time i try it on stage. French lyrics on Coltrane's chorus on Giant steps, with Dan Tepfer.
"Pas de géant tu as fait
Quand tu as compris que tu n’es pas là pour être ce que le monde veut
Pas de géant tu as fait quand ce que tu donnes vient du cœur, pas d’ailleurs ou d’là-bas, et qu’tu sais là où tu vas
1° grille : C’est c’qu’elle s’est amusée à chanter la petite un jour qu’elle s’ennuyait, ce genre de jour un peu tristesse bien rétréci et qui t’abaisse, un jour qui retourne sa veste et qui t’embarque à grande vitesse, sans que tu aies demandé ton reste des pas de mouches changés en pas de géants, mais t’es sérieuse ? absolument je n’y croyais pas non plus sur le moment et vlà la bouille de la gosse promenée sur un virtuel carrosse
2° : Non ! mais si et là commence un cocasse et atypique road movie, passage par la Pologne, la Serbie, New York, l’Italie, et l’Andalousie, des personnages à la tex Avery ou sortis tout droit d’un cadavre exquis qui se rejoignent sur la piste où la transe règne après tout c’est tout c'qui nous reste pour s’en sortir, non ? d’être ensembles fous et hilares
3° : Je pense que c’est un peu dans cet état que Coltrane devait être lorsqu’il a trouvé ses démoniaques changes, le pauvre Tommy Flanagan doit s’en souvenir encore de là où il est, il faut dire que se retrouver face à une pareille bête pour la première fois de sa vie ça doit vraiment donner le bourdon "mais quelle mouche l’a piqué?" qu’ils devaient tous se dire en déchiffrant la partition
4° : Et à la fois son giant steps qui a l’allure d’un exercice de virtuosité est bien au-delà d’ça c’est comme le corps d’un fauve relâché qui se déploie , comme si le ciel était éclairé soudain’ment par une idée, et je citerais la fabuleuse phrase d’ Alain Ge**er « Tout ce que tu sais tient dans ta tête mais tout ce que tu ne sais pas déborde de ton coeur «
5° : c’est à mon avis la plus jolie image que l’on peut trouver n’est-c’pas ? car l’improvisation est tout d’abord une affaire de sensation, de ressenti ,manifestation de c'que je suis, la musique qui me représente comme dirait la belle Shirley Horn, c’est un peu comme un concentré d’âme, comme si on ne devenait qu’une seule chose, l’essence
6° : chanter cette improvisation c’est un peu comme essayer de danser avec cet absolu, dans un seul souffle, prendre le train avec train et surtout ne pas traîner, sauter tout entier dans son vide, on verra bien c’qu'il adviendra, on est là pour délivrer l’urgence, sa subjectivité radicale, pas de conceptualisation, on s’en fout, on est juste là pour dire au self-control d’aller voir si j’y suis
7° : s’éprouver soi-même est éprouvant et ce n’est pas en détalant que l’on s’essouffle le plus vite, c’est en osant laisser parler enfin celui qui se tait toujours tout au fond et si il ne veut rien dire le laisser transmettre ce qu’il est sans avoir aucunement à s’en justifier, c’est un peu ça que j’essaie de saisir lorsque j’apprends et chante les improvisations des autres
8° : pilimpopidip il faut dire que c’est agréable d’essayer d’épouser d’autres formes que les siennes, poursuivre l’ombre du guépard, pendant que professeur Coltrane t’apprend les pas de transe essayer d’imaginer les intentions sous les impulsions, mettre ma voix au service d’un flot d’idées,
9° : et voilà que je cale, arrivée à la 9e grille, l’objectif de tout ça est que tout finisse par tomber pour laisser place à la seule chose qui importe dans l’histoire, mais il ne faut pas que ce giant steps ne soit utilisé pour épater la gallerie, le but étant de comprendre que l’on ne saura jamais là où on va ni pourquoi mais y aller quand même
10° : La vélocité ne sert qu’à ça, à s’oublier et à atteindre d’autres sphères, comme dans un marathon on double d’efforts pour essayer d’atteindre son centre, on craque on pleure et on relâche tout, on voit pas le bout, on n’y croit plus et le doute peut s'installer, c’est ça que m’inspire ce step de géant, c’est la capacité au dépass’ment de soi parfois insoupçonné
11° : Vous inquiétez pas on est bientôt arrivés à la fin de ce long discours c’était pour tester votre attention et votre capacité de concentration, sachez quand même qu’ils vécurent heureux et eurent beaucoup de Coltrane changes et qu’avec une grille de plus, John aurait reçu une cymbale à la figure et j’aurais péri d’asphyxie
