Performing with the Louisville Ballet

Last week I had¬†the opportunity to perform with the Louisville Ballet for their annual Choreographer’s Showcase. Composer, Tim Barnes asked me to join the ensemble for his piece comprised of cicada/bird field recordings, electronics, horn, guitar, violin, and percussion. All four performances¬†sold out early and were met with an engaged audience. Tim’s music was paired beautifully with Andrea Schermoly’s choreopgraphy . Also on the concert were fantastic works by composer/choreographer collaborations Daniel Gilliam/Ashley Thursby, Ben Sollee/Brandon Ragland, and Kyle James Hauser/Eduard Forehand. I especially loved the variety in music and choreography styles throughout the night. Check out some of the reviews below and pictures by the staff of the Courier Journal.
