Musica, Dayton’s Chamber Choir, is partnering with the Dance Department at Stivers School for the Arts to present Body & Voices, a program utilizing the talents of both musicians and dancers.
The Musica ensemble will be under the direction of Artistic Director, Dr. Jeffery Stern and the Stivers dancers are under the direction of Adjunct Faculty and Choreographer, Rodney Veal.
The Body & Voices concert will capture the spirit and convey the story of the American Civil War through song and movement. Our program tells this story in four sections: a study of one of the most popular composers of the time, Stephen Foster; a look into the burdens of war; exploration of songs representing the struggle to end slavery; and a finale representing American patriotism. Mr. Veal says, “we are very excited to be collaborating with Musica on this concert, which allows us to interpret these wonderfully arranged classic choral works through modern dance.”
Body & Voices will be presented in the recently renovated Eichelberger Hall at Stivers School for the Arts on Saturday, March 12 at 7:00 and Sunday, March 13 at 3:00.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for Students and Seniors. For more information, call (937) 619-9755 or visit www.musicadayton.org.
