The Melanthium Ensemble performs all-original repertoire at selected live venues and as soundtrack for video and film. The Ensemble’s unique compositions include  influences from many musical  styles, a blend we call Chamber Fusion.   In 2016 the Ensemble will be performing live at selected locations in the Bay Area, and is currently working on two film score projects. We welcome inquiries from videographers and film producers, as well as from live concert venues.

The Ensemble is made up of five accomplished musicians - Craig Fry (violin), Jay Rizzetto (trumpet), Fred Randolph (String Bass), Lew Richmond (pianist and composer) ,   and Ward Spangler (percussion). These highly regarded  veterans of the professional music scene have had rich and varied musical experiences as soloists, ensemble players, recording artists and composers.
