The most significant collaboration ever undertaken between BYU and a Chinese arts institution comes full circle when students from the Beijing Dance Academy visit the United States to perform together again with the BYU Philharmonic. Replicating elements of a joint performance held in Beijing in May 2011, students from both institutions come together to present a program of contemporary dance, inspired by traditional movement and music.
Pieces on the program featuring both ensembles:
“The Butterfly Lovers Violin Concerto” by Chen Gang and He Zhanbao
”Rodeo” by Aaron Copland
