The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony will present Dance Vibrations: Hoedown to Ballet to Mexican Danzon on Monday, November 12, at 7:00pm in the sanctuary at First Presbyterian Church, 520 Royal Palm Boulevard, Vero Beach. For this concert only, admission is free and there is no ticket needed. A $10 donation is suggested at the door.
Linking the physics of music to motion and emotion, this concert explores powerful dance themes by composers from around the world. A desire to physically express oneself through movement is a universal human reaction to the vibrations of musical instruments. In this performance, composers sound their stories for ballet and dance that often include motifs from the folk music of their home countries including the United States, Mexico, Armenia, Austria, and Russia.
Concertgoers can look forward to challenging college-level orchestral repertoire including Igor Stravinsky’s Petrushka, Khachaturian’s Adagio from Spartacus, Copland’s Hoedown from Rodeo, Strauss’s Blue Danube, Gliere’s Russian Sailor Dance from The Red Poppy, and Marquez’s Danzon No. 2. Additional performances requiring a ticket will be held Monday, November 19 at the Lyric Theatre at 59 Southwest Flagler Avenue in Stuart, and Monday, November 26 at the Eissey Campus Theatre, 11051 Campus Drive, in Palm Beach gardens.
