Mark Morris Dance Group: Listening Parties
This summer, join MMDG for a series of free, livestreamed Listening Parties with Mark Morris and MMDG Music Director Colin Fowler as they delve into music of different genres and eras. The first event will be centered around Music from the Movies and will include a live, online question-and-answer session with Morris and Fowler.
Alfred Hitchcock said, “If it’s a good movie, the sound could go off and the audience would still have a pretty clear idea of what was going on.” That’s the opposite of what Balanchine said about ballet. Imagine the shower scene from Psycho without the chilling score of Bernard Herrmann. Morris and Fowler will explore some of the greatest contributions to this genre as masterworks in their own right.
Registration will open on Thursday, July 16. Look out for an email inviting you to register!
