Spring Celestials, featuring Dance Currents with Pro Arte Chamber Orchestra playing live both performances.
The program includes three pieces, Ressourcement to Bach's Cello Suite in D minor, Emergence to Archangelo Corelli's Concerto #8 in G minor and Dawn, to Louise Farrenc's Trio for flute, violin, and cello in E minor and Nadia Boulanger's Pieces for Cello and Piano. The inspiration for the choreography by Kathy Hassinger, artistic director of Dance Currents Inc., is from moments of transcendent memory: a sacred space, (Ressourcement) a birth (Emergence), and the moment of creation (Dawn). The program will be performed by the accomplished dancers, Jennifer Burpee, Sarah Josselyn, Li-Ann Lim, Lauren Previte, Kai Sherman and Alison Smith as well as Pro Arte Chamber Orchestra of Boston's renowned musicians. Dance Currents has performed this program twice before, once with LaVazza Chamber Orchestra May 13, 2012, and also on December 9th, 2012 with Peter Zay as cellist.
Dance Currents Inc. is thrilled to collaborate with Pro Arte's fine musicians while opening up a new venue for dance in Newton.
