The School of Dance and the School of Music will collaborate on a spectacular Spring Dance event that will also serve as the final UNCSA Symphony Orchestra performance of the year. Students from both the ballet and contemporary programs will perform along with student and faculty musicians as well as with professional guest artists.

The first half of the program will feature premieres by UNCSA alumni, including “Inside Voice” by Trey McIntyre (H.S. Diploma ‘87), and a new ballet work, “Show Me,” by Jim Vincent (Dance ’78). The evening continues with Stravinsky’s “The Rite of Spring” choreographed by Dance faculty Britt Juleen Gonzalez, and set to an arrangement for percussion performed live by the Vesna Duo comprising Music faculty Ksenija Komljenović on marimba and Liana Pailodze Harron on piano.

An iconic version of Stravinsky’s dazzling “Firebird,” created exclusively for Dance Theatre of Harlem (DTH) in 1982 with a tropical setting, will conclude the program, with Music faculty member Mark A. Norman conducting the UNCSA Symphony Orchestra live. Guest soloists from DTH, Alexandra Hutchinson and Derek Brockington, will dance lead roles on opening night as part of a new multi-year partnership between DTH and UNCSA. 

Sponsored, in part, by the Thomas S. Kenan Institute for the Arts.
