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.

Quotes & Highlights
“…a technical exploration of the dynamic of speed, impact and close interaction…. made me think of hot sunlight and daring athletics.” —Daily News Record
Next Reflex Dance Collective presents Electro Shutdown & The Pea, an experience from within a night club that begins upon your arrival. Entering the theater, you will find the familiar Dance Place stage transformed into the new hot D.C. night club,“The Pea”.
Spectators participate in the action, waiting in line to enter the club, interacting with cocktail waitresses and club goers in the lobby, and then are placed in the thick of the concert scene. In this wild spectacle of a show, NRDC performers represent an array of club goers and give an inside view to various scenarios found in a night club from the funny and absurd to the romantic and frenetic. The evening closes with a live musical performance by Electro Shutdown and an open dance floor.
