The Bach Aria Soloists continued its “Season of Collaboration” by teaming up with Owen/Cox Dance Group for a successful performance of diverse sonatas at the Folly Theater last weekend.
The 2013–14 season has been one of exciting collaboration for the Bach Aria Soloists, who, since the fall, have joined their considerable talents with the likes of newEar contemporary chamber ensemble and the Heart of America Shakespeare Festival. Reaching into another facet of Kansas City’s local talent, the Soloists formed a partnership with the Owen/Cox Dance Group, known for their innovative work with new music and contemporary dance. This past Saturday found the pair of groups working together to create several new pieces against the backdrop of the historic Folly Theater.
