Central Oregon Mastersingers Choral Dances with special guests, Ubiquitous Dance Company
Singing and dancing will come together March 12-13 when the Mastersingers, led by Clyde Thompson, are joined on stage by Central Oregon’s Ubiquitous Dance Company. Founder and director of the 15-member dance company, Dee Dee Burzynski, has created new choreography especially for this concert.
An array of music from the classic choral repertoire will be presented, from Monteverdi to Brahms, all the way to stunning new works by leading choral composers of the 21st century. The featured work, performed in collaboration with the dancers, will be the powerful, three-movement Lamentations of Jeremiah by 20th Century Argentine composer Alberto Ginastera. The combined groups will end the concert with a riotous take on Techno Dance music, Nyon Nyon.
The Ubiquitous Dancers will present works of their own including excerpts from Igor Stravinsky’s ballet, Agon.
Saturday March 12, 7pm at the Madras Performing Arts Center, 412 Buff Street in Madras.
Sunday March 13, 2pm at the Tower Theatre in Bend.
