High Strung

Fusing Dance and Classical Music

Art of Élan's Ensemble-in-Residence, the Kontras Quartet from Chicago, will perform alongside dancers on The Lyceum Theatre stage. The show offers rich vocabularies, both musically and choreographically.

Virtual Encounters: The Regional Music of Mexico

This 50-minute live-hosted music and discussion event will explore the human experience as expressed through three styles of Mexican regional music. Hermanos Herrera, along with Dr. Rice, will explore the lived meanings of son jarochoson huasteco, and accordion-based norteño music, from northern Mexico. They will discuss each genre’s history as well as the stylistic differences among them. They will also tell the story of how they came to dedicate themselves to performing these particular styles. After each prerecorded performance segment, the group, with instruments in hand, will answer any questions you may have about a particular instrument, music style, and the personal and social significance of their music.
