Bringing 4orth Diamonds I Fri, Oct 27, 2023, 8:00 pm
African American women have created a plethora of music based upon personal and historical experiences. The depth of emotion, beauty of line and complexity of harmonies adds much to the compilation of music by African Americans. The women highlighted have blossomed throughout seemingly insurmountable obstacles to create music that is artistically thought-provoking, and ground-breaking in their approach to life as they have maneuvered through the challenges presented them on a daily basis. Rising above hardships, they prove that music makes it possible to bring forth diamonds!

This evening of dance consists of three dynamic choreographic works known as The Mixed Bag Series. TWO FACES is a mixed media piece dealing with identity, reflection, love, and peace within told through music by Gian Carlo Menotti, Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Sergey Rachmaninoff. Keith Lee's choreography to "A Dancers Signature" Story is about a dancer looking deep within on how we as a people have different personas of our human character that we bring to life by way of people that are close to us—Matheis Lockett, "Love Songs" The Quincy Jones Suite. The suite will consist of stories of love through storytelling and movement. Quincy Jones has been a well-known composer for over six decades for so many artists that will bring a fresh robust look on older generational songs.
