(CANCELLED) DORRANCE DANCE
SOUNDspace

FRIDAY, MARCH 20, 2020 · 8 PM
The Baker-Baum Concert Hall

Bringing innovation to the tap tradition and paving the way for a new generation, Michelle Dorrance, founder and artistic director of Dorrance Dance, is one of the most acclaimed tap dancers and “one of the most imaginative tap choreographers working today” (The New Yorker). SOUNDspace, originally a site-specific work that explored the unique acoustics of New York City’s St. Mark’s Church, grows and adapts in this reinvention for The Baker-Baum Concert Hall. With the myriad sounds and textures of the feet, Ms. Dorrance’s work explores what is most beautiful and exceptional about tap dancing—movement as music.

“…entirely glorious.” – The New York Times

Known for his fearless reinterpretations of the classics, organist Cameron Carpenter has decisively brought the pipe organ tradition into the 21st century. Carpenter is “the Maverick Organist… he is a player with extraordinarily glib fingers and Astaire-like footwork… a first-rate talent with a sense of how phrases move” (The New York Times).

“Carpenter is one of the rare musicians who changes the game of his instrument… He is a smasher of cultural and classical music taboos. He is technically the most accomplished organist I have ever witnessed… And, most important of all, the most musical”
