Celebrating 10 years, Cordancia revisits some of its favorite repertoire.
 
A decade ago, Milhaud's "La Création du Monde" brought
a group of musicians together for a performance in 2009. 
This event became the creation of Cordancia. For this year's celebrations, Cordancia will perform La Création with dancers from BIODANCE and Rachel Lauber on the podium.
 
The program also features composer anniversaries and includes "Dreams" by George Antheil, "The Sleepers" by David Liptak with soprano soloist Tyler Cassidy-Heacock, and "Champagne Galop" by H. C. Lumbye.

It's Live: Stop Drop & Listen
With music by living composers, the winner, Michael Huerta, flute, of the Nico Toscano Concerto Competition, with comedians Kerry and Abby, topped by a live performance and interview on WXXI's Backstage Pass, this program is filled to the brim with exciting features.
Something New includes "Stop, Drop, and Listen," a humorous work for orchestra, actors and audience by Elizabeth A Kelly. ​Jazzy "Fountain of Steel" by  Australian composer, Aristea Mellos is light and joyful. Thomas Osborne's "Smoke Steel Stone Cinder" is inspired by the elements - the elements of industry. Peter Schickele's "Eine Kleine Nichtmusik" is playful but it's not all Mozart!
(Please note that the soloist will not perform on March 1)

The brilliantly blue skies of the north are displayed in music from Norway, Denmark, Iceland, and Finland. Violin soloist, Hildigunnur Hálldórsdóttir, is a former graduate of the Eastman School of Music and is currently a member of the Icelandic Symphony and the contemporary ensemble Caput. 
 
The program features dance music by Edward Grieg, echoes of Norse myth as interpreted by Niels W. Gade, recorded songs of birds in an interplay with orchestra by Einojuhani Rautavaara, and a violin concerto by Haukur Tomasson that portrays the violin as a traveller and the ensemble a landscape.
