Music That Should Be Danced

Foundation_MTSBD_2_small.jpg

This unique showcase of inspired new collaborative works by Houston musicians and dancers reflects our city's richly diverse creative spirit and includes the premiere of a work commissioned and choreographed for Foundation for Modern Music (FMM)'s resident performing group, Avalon Ensemble and dancers.

Juxtaposition of various musics and dance styles of multiple cultures alongside “serious” classical art music is FMM’s way of departing from a typical stuffy concert atmosphere — a signature of the organization that reflects Houston’s unique embrace of our wonderfully varied treasures.

Participants include Greenbriar Consortium, Houston Symphony musicians, HSPVA, Meyerland Middle School Dance Dept., Multicultural Education and Counseling through the Arts (MECA), Urban Souls Dance Company, and more.

This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30 AM-1:00 PM. If tickets remain at 1:00 PM, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill. The shows goes on rain or shine.
