Steve Peters

After three years, it looks like the seemingly quixotic experiment set up at Wallingford's Chapel Performance Space—a venue for music at its least commercial—has put down solid roots. Steve Peters, who with his nonprofit organization Nonsequitur rents the airy, paneled space from Historic Seattle and makes it available to musicians for next to nothing, oversees a packed performance schedule (if you want to book a Friday or Saturday night between now and the end of the year, your choices are severely limited). Not only a gatekeeper, Peters is also a tireless cheerleader for contemporary music of all kinds—theater and jazz, chamber and ambient, electronic and free improv (and daring combinations thereof)—and a captivating composer in his own right. —Gavin Borchert chapelspace.blogspot.com
