Continuing in the collaborative spirit of Liánjie (connections), Art of Élan turns to its friends in the San Diego dance world to present a unique concert event that highlights the musical connection that modern composers have with Asian cultures on March 27, 2012 at 7:00 pm at James S. Copley Auditorium located at the San Diego Museum of Art.
Featuring the Jean Issacs’ San Diego Dance Theater, with music by Bright Sheng, Steve Reich, and an arrangement of the famous Korean folksong “Arirang” by local jazz pianist Geoffrey Keezer, this program also illustrates the strong connection between music and dance while paying homage to the rich heritage of Asian culture.
Admission: $20 for members, senior, and military, $25 for nonmembers, and $10 for students.
