Join The NOCCA Institute for a celebration of strings and swing on Saturday, September 17, 2011 at 7:30pm as we present DANCING WITH THE FAUBOURG, featuring the Faubourg Quartet! This one-night-only event will be held in the intimate Nims Black Box Theatre, on NOCCA’s campus at 2800 Chartres Street, New Orleans.
From classical to tango, ballet to swing, the Faubourg Quartet will perform works by Beethoven, Piazzolla, Shostakovich, and more. The Quartet will be joined onstage by Chia-Hsing Lin (piano) and Geoff Clapp (drums), plus dancers Nathalie Gomes Adams, Jarina Carvalho, Robert Claypool, Ector Gutierrez, and Argerie Villalobos, who will bring these beloved compositions to life with some very fancy footwork.
DANCING WITH THE FAUBOURG marks the start of the Faubourg Quartet’s 2011-12 season. Additional performances will take place in the fall and spring, including the ensemble’s acclaimed charity concert supporting Coats for Kids.
