ST. GEORGE – The St. George Dance Company will perform in collaboration with Southwest Symphony in their Halloween Spooktacular Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at the Dixie State University Cox Auditorium. The theme is “Movie Monsters,” and concertgoers are invited, but not required, to wear their favorite costume. St. George Dance Company will perform to four of the seven musical selections played live by the symphony.
The program will be conducted by special guest conductor William Rhoden.
The “King Kong” score will be brought to life by choreographer Katherine Call and will depict the frightening aspects of obsession and pride and how they can consume what matters most in life.
Jennie Jones has created a piece to “Adagio in G Minor” by Tomaso Albinoni. This dance explores the romantic possibility that Albinoni began creating this masterpiece before his death, and that Giazotto was able to bring to fruition this eerie melody under the guidance of Albinoni’s ghost.
Choreographer Summer Belnap Robertson will perform a duet with Lexie Corbett in a raft boat to the musical score “Jaws,” depicting the fear and emotions brought from within the music and even interacting with guest conductor Rhoden.
Additional choreography by Robertson will also present a dark take on the ebb and flow of love in a remake of television’s “The Bachelor,” danced to Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 7 in A Major.”
“This concert is open to people of all ages,” Robertson said. “It’s really a great opportunity to share your love of the performing arts with your children and grandchildren.”
Choreographers and dancers participating are: Summer Belnap Robertson, Katherine Call, Cole Chollet, Lexie Corbett, Krisen Day, Bethany Gee, Jared Fleurant, Bailey Johnson, Jennie Jones, Courtney Pearce, Micadyn Sanders, Jennifer Wadsworth and Rebekah Wainwright.
