Throughout the 20th Century an explosion of original music filled American dance performances with the iconic sounds of a newly emerging American identity. Few composers captured this powerful presence more than Samuel Barber, who, when most composers were experimenting with dissonance and freedom in musical form, was writing in a lyrical, romantic style filled with achingly beautiful melody – distinctively American melody. Through the virtuosity of nationally celebrated choreographer, Lauren Edson, you will experience a fresh, new interpretation of Barber’s music in modern dance. Come experience the breezy chatter and carefree excitement of the Boardwalk while capturing the essence of hot summer nights from the deep south of old America with the nationally acclaimed Lauren Edson + Dancers.
