Performing with the Louisville Ballet

Last week I hadĀ 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 performancesĀ 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.
