2010-11-15 · By Editor
Six musical masterpieces performed by a full orchestra, contemporary dance, and multimedia come together in Fusion: A Performance of Dance and Live Orchestra. For the first time in the history of the College of the Arts, the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music and the Department of Dance collaborate on a concert that brings cutting-edge choreography together with a live symphony orchestra. Fusion takes place at CSULB’s Richard and Karen Carpenter Performing Arts Center on Friday, November 19 and Saturday, November 20, 2010.
Choreographers Colleen Dunagan, Susan McLain, Sophie Monat and Lorin Johnson, along with guest choreographer Holly Johnston (one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to watch” and Artistic Director of Ledges and Bones in Los Angeles), present five premieres inspired by the music of Steve Reich, Johann Sebastian Bach, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Igor Stravinsky and Claude Debussy. A humorous new dance film by Keith Johnson and Gregory Crosby, “Life in Security,” will also be presented. Johannes Müller-Stosch, Director of the Cole Conservatory Orchestra, will conduct and oversee this exciting event along with Concert Director Lorin Johnson, an Assistant Professor in the Dance Department.
