Shall We Dance

November 4, 2023 @ 7:30 pm 8:30 pm

The Milligan Orchestra, under the direction of Dr. Kellie Brown, will explore the dynamic and synergistic relationship between dance and music. This event will highlight how composers have written not only for staged dance but also used dance forms as inspiration for concert repertoire. This concert will feature a broad range of pieces including Respighi’s “Ancient Airs and Dances,” Beethoven’s “Six Country Dances,” Strauss’s “Pizzicato Polka,” and Herbert’s “Air de ballet.” In addition, dance-themed pieces from popular music genres will include Joanne Martin’s “Soft Shoe,” Pee Wee King’s “Tennessee Waltz,” and Rodger and Hammerstein’s “Shall We Dance” from the beloved musical The King and I, sung by Jamie Buxton, assistant professor of musical theatre
