Ensemble Connect Up Close

What Does it Mean to Be Moved?
Wednesday, February 24, 2021 7:30 PM Online
Join Ensemble Connect for an immersive journey—in collaboration with contemporary dance artist Wendell Gray II and director Isabella LoRusso—that explores music’s power to physically and emotionally move people. Including a structured improvisation based on body movements, engage with the music at home to see how it inspires movement and how movement inspires music. The event also features works by Boulanger, Boulogne, Paquito D’Rivera, Hindemith, Koechlin, Komitas, and Villa-Lobos.
