On June 22 at 7:30 and June 23 at 4:00 we’ll be performing “Juxtaposition and Other Dances” at the Dairy Arts Center in Boulder.
The company will welcome dancers Bailey Harper, Jenny Gram and Claire Kendall to join us for these shows. We’ll be performing a premiere set to music of Colorado composer Chappell Kingsland. We’ll be repeating our premiere from last fall – “Juxtaposition” (set to music of CU’s own Daniel Kellogg). We’ll also be reconstructing 3 works from Kahn’s repertoire – “Complete the Circuit”, excerpts from “Over Under Around and Through”, and “Concerto”.
Inside the Orchestra
Watch for our participation with Inside the Orchestra. We are again performing as part of their fall and spring Tiny Tots programs during their 2018-19 season.
Tiny Tots gets children truly “inside the orchestra” by seating the audience on the floor and surrounding them with our 30+ piece professional orchestra.
Designed for children six and under, Tiny Tots is a 45-minute program that gives young ones the chance to interact with the conductor and the musicians and learn about the instruments in the process. Children are encouraged to respond to different elements of the music, from thinking about how music makes them feel to getting on their feet and moving. They are treated to up-close-and-personal demos by various instruments, introduced to musical concepts, emotional understanding of the arts, and artistic expression. The music selection, design, and scripting of Tiny Tots is geared to connect very young children with music – physically, emotionally, and mentally. Children are also encouraged to take a closer look at the instruments and ask questions of the musicians after the concert has concluded. Every Tiny Tots event includes guest performers from some of our cultural partner organizations.
