Dances Around the World

Graham-Kapowsin High School

May 18, 2019 7:30 pm

Join us for a concert you can dance too! Our 37th season comes to a close with dance music from around the world.

We will be performing works from Israel, Mexico, and Italy (although it was composed by a Russian composer). Also on the list, are several movements from some of the oldest music written for wind instruments. ‘Selections from the “Danserye”‘ is dance music written during the Renaissance period by Tielman Susato in 1551. The wind instruments we hear today are very different from instruments of the 1500s except for maybe the flute and drum.

This concert we feature the Thomas E. Anderson Scholarship recipient, Eze Odimba. Eze will perform “Carnival of Venice” for Alto Saxophone. Read more about Eze.

Rounding out our concert will be more modern dances from the US. “Suite of Old American Dances” will set us back to the 40s and 50s during jazz and ragtime eras, and “Symphonic Dances of West Side Story” will make you shout “Mombo” and have you dancing the Cha-Cha.

We look forward to seeing you on May 18!
