Canceled: Symphonic Dances

Presented by Akron Symphony Orchestra at EJ Thomas Performing Arts Hall - University of Akron, Akron OH

May 16 2020
Canceled: Symphonic Dances

Clyne Masquerade • Price Juba Dance & Finale (from Symphony No. 1) • Turina Danzas fantásticas • Newmaster Impressions of Cheonmachong (Korean Three Drum Dance) • Rachmaninoff Symphonic Dances

Color, movement and a kaleidoscope of international styles. Turina – and early 20th century pioneer – established flamenco as a thoroughly authentic style ripe for the big stage. The virtuosic Korean Three Drum Dance amazes both visually and aurally. Rachmaninoff’s last score, the tour-de-force Symphonic Dances, holds charms and thrills right up to its final, electrifying “Allelujah.”

Christopher Wilkins, conductor
Alice Blumenfeld, flamenco dancer
Holly Shin-young, Korean Three Drum dancer
Anna Courchaine, Korean Three Drum dancer
Quinn Lee, Korean Three Drum dancer


Anna Clyne’s Masquerade had its world premiere during the BBC’s Last Night of the Proms in 2013. The composer drew inspiration from the original mid-18th century promenade concerts held in London’s pleasure gardens — a place where people from all walks of life mingled to enjoy a wide array of music.
