Concert Hall

Described by The Washington Post as "one of the seven wonders of the artistic universe," this venerated ensemble is committed to preserving the legacy of its preeminent founder, Martha Graham, whose timeless and uniquely American style of dance has influenced generations of artists. Featured in this marvelous evening of contemporary dance is Appalachian Spring Suite, which includes a narration created from letters between Graham and Aaron Copland, Graham's Cave of the Heart set to the music of Samuel Barber, and Maple Leaf Rag, which was Graham's last work. Also included on the program is Echo, which is a new work choreographed by Andonis Foniadakis. "[Graham's choreography] remains a true, living American document." (The New York Times)
