PRESENTS

Conductor Finalist, Richard Buckley

"Dancing and Traveling with Copland and Friends"

Saturday April 8, 2017 at 7:30 PM*
Texas A&M University Corpus Christi Performing Arts Center
6300 Ocean Drive


Our final Conductor Finalist, Richard Buckley, has chosen a program to impress concert goers of all ages and tastes! Young and old will be drawn to attention by Kodaly’s world renowned Dances of Galanta. Experience the intense power of this great symphonic work - according to many, Kodaly’s most popular composition.

If that doesn’t get your senses ignited, then Copland’s Appalachian Spring Suite will make sure you are fully immersed into the wonderful world of Americana, drawing you into the hope and fulfillment of the American experience.

Then travel to the opposite side of the world where acclaimed Stalinist era composer, Dmitri Shostakovich delves into his own personal passions in one of his most famous works, Symphony No. 5. Listen as he speaks to us today through this very poignant symphony that ends with a triumphant march!

*Pre-concert entertainment and cocktails begin at 6:15 PM.
Footnotes, a special pre-concert talk with the Maestro, opens to all ticket holders at 6:30 PM.

Concert begins at 7:30 PM.

TAMU-CC Department of Theatre and Dance presents

"Island Dance Demo: Conviction"


Wednesday April 26, 2017 at 7:30p.m.

The Island Dance Demo "Conviction" is a culmination of the spring semester's work in all areas of dance-ballet, jazz, modern dance, choreography and dance performance.  The concert gives the audience an idea of what the dance program at TAMUCC is all about within the parameters of a produced concert.  This year we commissioned three guest choreographers to create works on the students in Dance Performance.  Two choreographers, Christy Sadler Gorman and Sarah Gonzalez, are locally based and the third choreographer, Cristina Goletti, is the Chair of the Arts Department at the Universidad de las Americas, Puebla in Mexico.  We are fortunate to have such talented choreographers work with our students.  This semester we also collaborated with TAMUCC's Media Production Department to create a dance film, which was choreographed by Jilissa Cotten, performed by the students in Dance Performance and shot and edited by Nick Manley and students studying in media production.  We worked with the community to shoot in a variety of locations around Corpus Christi.

TICKETS
Ticket prices are $10 for general admission, $7 for students and $5 for TAMUCC students paying with cash only.  You can purchase online at (info coming soon) or at the box office in the PAC one hour before the performance at 6300 Ocean Drive.

For more information please call Jilissa Cotten
at (361) 825-3296.

7:30p.m.
