Enjoy an evening of orchestral music celebrating Dance 

Join DIT Symphony Orchestra under the direction of David Brophy for an evening of exhilarating and colourful orchestral music inspired by dance. 

John Adams’ driven rhythms are followed by his orchestrations of Piazzolla’s powerful Argentine tangos. DIT graduate David Fennessy imagines “a microscopic orchestra all seated in the swirl of a fingerprint”.  Rachmaninoff’s final completed composition is both vibrant and melancholic with the spirit of Russia and dance intertwined.

Presented by the DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama
