Internationally renowned Artists By Any Other Name presents their original production “The Planetarium”, a marriage of music and dance inspired by Roman mythology, the solar system and the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.
The performance is a culmination of the Young Artist Exchange annual Creative Experiences workshop. The workshop strives to foster a sense of global citizenship through the performing arts. Teaching-artists together with students perform music and dance to masterworks of the string quartet repertoire (including works by Beethoven, Haydn, and Borodin).
Artists By Any Other Name is the ensemble-in-residence for Young Artist Exchange. They are an New York City based interdisciplinary ensemble that endeavors to realize a contemporary function for classical music by encouraging its symbiosis with contemporary dance. Through live performance in a variety of spaces, they communicate relevant themes to illustrate the worlds around and within us.
The program includes selections from:
- Beethoven String Quartet op. 18/1 and op. 18/4
- Haydn String Quartet op. 76/6
- Borodin String Quartet no. 2 in D major
- Hindemith String Quartet no. 1 in C major
- Jennifer Higdon Sky Quartet
