Dan Chadburn & Tom Nichols

Tom Nichols (right) & Dan ChadburnDan Chadburn and Tom Nichols began their musical collaboration in the fall of 1997. Their extensive instrumental and inspirational songs have touched many hearts. Feature credits include composition and performance credit for hit title tracks on two of the award winning Gay Men's Chorus of Washington recordings entitled And In That Moment (a Christmas collection), and I Dream Of A Time, a 20th anniversary concert recorded live in the Concert Hall of The Kennedy Center.

Dan and Tom both have a long tradition in church music and in 2001 released a collection of their original “faith” songs called Light My Step. The title song, “Light My Step,” is featured on Many Voices, and a second, “We Are a People of Hope,” is coming soon. 

Dan has released several solo albums, including solo piano and Reflections. He has been featured (alongside other pianists such as Suzanne Ciani, Spencer Brewer and Robin Spielberg) on several compilation recordings produced for charitable causes, including The Heart Aid Project, produced in the wake of the 9/11 tragedy, with all receipts from its sale benefiting victims of 9/11 and their families.

His performance venues have included Carnegie Hall in New York, Symphony Hall in Boston and The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Additionally, his choral compositions have been recorded and performed in the Concert Hall of The Kennedy Center.
