Prepare to be moved and inspired by the choreography and performances in this annual concert that features dances by selected JMU dance majors, former JMU dance professor Cynthia Thompson, and Rubén Graciani, dean of JMU’s College of Visual and Performing Arts and professor of dance. Graciani—in collaboration with The Madison Singers, JMU Chorale, a marimba ensemble and JMU dance students—will premiere Triptych, a fast-moving, three-movement work by Grammy-nominated composer Tarik O’Regan (b. 1978). The uplifting and unifying piece explores ideas about what happens when we die drawn from Jewish, Islamic and Christian texts.
