Fall Dance Concert

The Fall 2012 Dance Concert features a timeline of musical compositions stretching from the Baroque to the 21st century. Dance pieces range from the delicate beauty of a formal minuet to the thrilling athletic power of contemporary dance.

Guest choreographers are Catherine Turocy, artistic director, The New York Baroque Dance Company, and Nathan Trice, artistic director, Nathan Trice/RITUALS. Faculty choreographers include Darrah Carr, Rachel List, Amy Marshall, and Karla Wolfangle. Conductor David Ramael, director of orchestral activities at Hofstra University, will lead the Hofstra Symphony Orchestra, while the Hofstra Percussion Ensemble will be directed by Montgomery Hatch and Arthur Solari, providing live music for all pieces on the program. The concert features an original composition by Hofstra alumnus Mitchell McCarthy and a guitar solo performance by Hofstra faculty member William Zito.
