LA CANADA, CA–On Friday, May 18 at 7:00pm and Saturday May 19 at 2:00pm California Contemporary Ballet (https://calballet.com) and Windsong Players Chamber Ensemble will perform “A Concert of Music and Dance” at the Dance Street Theater located at California DanceArts, 4490 Cornishon Ave in La Cañada.

This is a collaboration stemming from the long-term friendship and imaginations of two artists who will deliver a lovely concert of music and dance. The stunning choreography of Aerin Holt, as performed by the dancers of the California Contemporary Ballet dance company, weaves together Holt’s creative visions in the form of dramatic vignettes with the accompanying musical delights of the Windsong Players Chamber Ensemble, directed by flutist/poet, Alice Pero.
Music will be performed for flute, violin, viola and piano by Debussy, Quantz, Telemann, Rachmaninov, Babjanyan, Aghiyan and others, as well as a world premiere by local composer, Carol Worthey. The evening and afternoon performances will be certain to romance any lover of live music and dance, enhanced by poetry, song and story.
