Celebrating their 25th Anniversary season, the Orion String Quartet joins the Bill T. Jones/ Arnie Zane Dance Company for a highly anticipated two-week engagement at The Joyce Theater from March 26th-April 7th.

This season marks the 30th Anniversary for the Bill T. Jones/ Arnie Zane Dance Company. The Orion String Quartet will play works of Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Ravel and Schubert as dancers from the Bill T. Jones/ Arnie Zane Dance Company perform the innovative and powerful choreography of Bill T. Jones. These collaborative performances will be arranged in two varying programs and will include the New York premiere of Jones' Ravel: Landscape or Portrait? set to Maurice Ravel's String Quartet in F Major, and the New York premiere of Story, set to Franz Schubert's Death and the Maiden.

Since its inception, the Quartet has been consistently praised for the fresh perspective and individuality it brings to performances, offering diverse programs that juxtapose classic works of the standard quartet literature with masterworks by living composers. They remain on the cutting edge of programming with their wide-ranging commissions from composers Chick Corea, Brett Dean, David Del Tredici, Alexander Goehr, John Harbison, Leon Kirchner, Thierry Lancino, Lowell Libermann, Peter Lieberson, Wynton Marsalis, and Marc Neikrug. They have enjoyed a creative partnership with the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company since 1998.
