Mood Swings

Friday, April 26th, at 7pm

Join the Colton Ballet Company and the Augusta Virtuosi under the direction of Adam DePriest for an exciting evening of music and dance. The program offers eclectic choreography with the exhilaration of live music. Choreographer Andrew Kuharsky opens the program with an Augusta premiere of his work, Progressions, with music by Phillip Glass. His emotionally charged piece, Still Remembered, featuring Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings will be performed by Amanda & Morgan Hulen.

Peter Powlus will revive three riveting pieces from his larger ballet The Legend of the Hatfields & McCoys, featuring music by Sam Bush. Using the hauntingly beautiful music of Rachmoninoff’s Vocalise, Powlus will also premiere a work called Okaru, featuring vocalist Calloway Powlus and pianist David Brown. Based on the sensational theatricality of MOMIX, Amanda and Morgan Hulen have created a new work with music by Emandi.

Augusta native Caitlin McCormack Phibbs will also debut a new work featuring an old favorite by The Beatles. Augusta Virtuosi musicians include Buddy Fiorillo, violin, Haley Kovach, violin, Carl Purdy, viola, Idris Chandler, cello, Barry Garman, Double Bass and David Brown, piano, under the musical direction of Aiken native, Adam DePriest.
