Under the artistic direction of award-winning choreographer Gregory Dawson, this year’s annual Spring Concert features original choreography by Dawson set to the Baroque composer George Frideric Handel, as well as new choreography set to a score composed personally for Dawson by contemporary jazz musician/composer Richard Howell.
Dawson explains his inspiration for creating the diptych concerts:
“Handel and Howell share with the listener their respective interpretation of the life and times in which they exist. We will explore the nuances within these two diverse composers’ work. To us, movement is inspired by sound, which elevates the senses that trigger locomotion. The possibilities are limitless.”
Performances are Friday, March 14, 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, March 15 at 7:30p.m. at the Lakewood Cultural Center. The Saturday program includes admission to the company’s annual gala/silent auction beginning at
