Arodasi Dance choreographer-dancer: Kristi Dorothinia Hanna
This program is a collaboration with Helen Wood, producer of a new Paul Christopher and Ruth Drummond recording of the Offenbach Cello Duets. The dance movements have been choreographed to the lovely album recorded by the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra cellists.
The Arodasi Dancers includes Monica Fayad, Jenny Potter, Dorothy Allen, Maureen Murov, Liliana Lara and Skye Creswell.
The concert, part of the YWCA Celebration of Women's Week, will bloom on an outdoor stage by the rose garden adjacent to the Barnwell Garden & Art Center from 2:00 to 3:00.
More info: 318-518-6282.
Listening to the Christopher and Drummond recording of the Offenbach cello duets, I am struck by the intelligent production. First, it is appealing music, secondly, it is well performed and third, it is a smart package. Recorded locally by Roger Barnes, musician and technology maven, it is a model for musicians of the region. I bought my copy at Tower Books (865-7161), an oasis of literacy at 721 Azalea - near Steinmart on Line Avenue.
