Spotlight on Chris Elson

Chris Elson has been on the Upstream board in one capacity or another since 2005 with a couple of breaks for sabbatical years. As a listener, the relationship is even longer: he attended some of the first concerts of the Upstream Ensemble and also reviewed their first CD in The Paris New Music Review (which evolved into the online new music site, Paris Transatlantic: paristransatlantic.com )
