This event has passed.


The Curtis Institute of Music, Choral Arts Philadelphia and Brooklyn-based contemporary dance company Gallim Dance come together for a night of dance listening and organ watching. Organ soloists perform works written for dance to an empty stage, allowing the audience to imagine the movement it was created for — dancing for the ears. By contrast, the dancers will perform to an organ and choral work not made for dance, bringing the sounds and breath of the majestic instrument into their bodies —organ for the eyes. The moment at which the pipe begins to speak, when the key is pressed, is the attack point. Music and dance meet in non-traditional fashion in this unique presentation. 

This will be the World Premiere of Attack Point. 

This program is made possible through a donation by the Fred J. Cooper Restoration Fund as recommended by Frederick R. Haas and Daniel K. Meyer.
