58th University of Michigan Organ Conference
“An Evening of Doris Humphrey and J.S. Bach: Romantic Post-Modernism in Dance and Music”
- Tuesday October 2 8:00pm
The Dance Legacy Project—Doris Humphrey at Michigan—is a new faculty initiative directed by SMTD faculty Jillian Hopper and Christian Matijas-Mecca. This year’s program will feature three dances created by one of the pioneers of American Modern Dance, Doris Humphrey.
Air, Brandenburg Concerto #4, and Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor, will be performed at Hill Auditorium in collaboration with Professor James Kibbie, the U-M Organ Department, and the Baroque Chamber Ensemble under the direction of Professors Joseph Gascho and Aaron Berofsky. This concert will be the first presentation of all three dances on the same program, accompanied by live music in Bach’s original scoring.
A cast of 31 dancers from U-M and Eastern Michigan University will perform the works on the final concert of the 58th Annual U-M Organ Conference in a first-of-its-kind collaboration between the Organ and Dance Departments.
