Description: Ballet Theatre of Toledo proudly presents their “Spring Concert” with the SonoNovo Chamber orchestra on May 2-4, 2014 at Trinity Episcopal Church in downtown Toledo.

“This will be an evening of pure dance for music lovers” says Nigel Burgoine, Artistic Director of the Ballet Theatre of Toledo. “I have taken music from Russia, Germany and USA and choreographed a production to suit all ages.”

The program opens with Mussorgsky’s famous “Pictures at an Exhibition”, which presents
dancers in an art gallery setting and features their feelings and emotions to the beautiful music. Then, Tchaikovsky’s “Serenade for Strings” will transport dancers and audience members alike to the enchanting and powerful melodies featured in this orchestral delight. This is a showcase piece for BTT’s Company dancers. Next, Pachelbel's “Canon in D” will take the audience through a complete ballet class, performed by two Company soloists. Rounding-up the whole performance will be the spirited “Hoe-down” from Copland's “Rodeo”. The dancers will demonstrate western style dance and let their fun side shine through.

In celebration of “National Dance Week”, boys and girls ages 7-14 can come to Ballet Theatre of Toledo on April 27th from 4:00-5:00 pm for a free workshop and learn the choreography from the “Hoe-down.” Participants will receive $2 off the ticket price for the performance and will be invited to join the Ballet Theatre of Toledo's dancers on the stage in the performance.

Performance Times: Friday, May 2nd 7:00pm/Saturday, May 3rd 7:00pm/Sunday, May 4th 2:00pm
Tickets: $20 for Seniors and Children 12 & under, $25 for Adults.
