CWSO Symphony Orchestra - Tap Dance -
Sunday, April 22, 2018
3:40 p.m. gather - 4:00 p.m. show

Sentry Theater - Click for Mapquest Map
1800 North Point Drive
Stevens Point, W 54481

Premiered in 1952 by the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra with dancer Danny Daniels, Morton Gould’s Tap Dance Concerto was a step outside of the normal realm of orchestral soloists. Known for its complex rhythms, with the choreography left to the soloist, the revolutionary work has proven time and again that tap dancing and ‘serious’ composition work very well together, indeed! The CWSO is thrilled to invite Jeannie Hill, Associate Professor of Dance at UW-Stevens Point, to the stage for this remarkable performance. Jeannie produced the Point Tap Festival for six summers, bringing master teachers from across the country to teach and perform. Written as a ‘thank you’ to his hosts in Paris, Gershwin’s American in Paris was premiered by the New York Philharmonic in 1928.

Complete Program -
Samuel Barber Medea’s Mediation and Dance of Vengeance, Op. 23a
Morton Gould Tap Dance Concerto
Aaron Copland Rodeo: Four Dance Episodes
George Gershwin An American in Paris

Meet at Sentry Theater lobby near the ticket office at 3:40 pm. We will purchase our tickets at that time. Tickets are $28.49 adults, $23.21 seniors. Afterwards we can go out for a bite to eat at Octaviano’s 2300 Strongs Ave. It is the restaurant in the Skipp’s Bowling Alley Building.
