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.

Absolutely delightful. An incredible creation of trust between the dancers and the audience, where the watchers were a part of the performance itself. By the end I was ecstatic about all the possible experiences we can have inside our human bodies, and then the exponential effect of experience when we interact with others. Watching the dancers leap from square to square as they exited at the end was a confirmation of our exceptionally beautiful spirit. I left feeling unabashedly delighted at the promise of young, lovely, alive humans. The dance spellbound the audience with the glory of human potential.
Running time is 45 minutes.
