Acclaimed violinist Leila Josefowicz and choreographer Jessica Lang and her dance company join the National Symphony Orchestra to perform Pulitzer winner John Adams' Violin Concerto in the final program of the NEW MOVES: symphony + dance festival. Called "a master of visual composition" by Dance Magazine, Lang sets original choreography to Adams' melodic and colorful 1993 work. Josefowicz's playing has been described as being full of "zest and fiery personality" (Chicago Sun-Times) -- a perfect match for this expressive, breathless work. Also on the program are Aaron Copland's Pulitzer-winning masterpiece of pioneer life, Appalachian Spring; Michael Daugherty's Superman-inspired Red Cape Tango; and Sinfonia No. 4 ("Strands") by George Walker, the first African-American composer to win the Pulitzer.

This was a great mix of dance styles with classical, modern and flamenco using recorded music. My seats were placed in the balcony which is a problem. The heads of the people in front of me were blocking the view of the stage. Luckily, no one was in the seat next to me and I was able to move over and see better. I would be hestitant about buying tickets for performances by this company for fear I would get seats again where I couldn't see the stage.
