• The Rite of Spring Project


    On November 17 and 18, 2007, approximately 120 New York City school students took to the stage of The United Palace Theater in Upper Manhattan for an exciting dance performance of Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring with Sir Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker, and an additional 80 students premiered a new musical composition entitled Songs: Ritual Rhythms. The performance, featuring choreography by Royston Maldoom, was the culmination of a transformational educational project that took place over two months in the fall of 2007.
