As part of the Martha Graham Dance Company’s popular Studio Series, Graham 2 will perform Martha Graham’s beloved masterwork Appalachian Spring (1944). One of Graham’s most celebrated works, Appalachian Spring has been called “shining and joyous” and “a testimony to the simple fineness of the human spirit” (The New York Times). The work features Aaron Copland’s Pulitzer Prize-winning score and a spare set by Graham’s longtime collaborator Isamu Noguchi. Performances are Saturday, December 8, at 1pm (family matinee) with an evening performance at 6pm, and Sunday, December 9, at 2pm. On Saturday evening, the score will be performed live by the International Chamber Orchestra of America directed by Daniel Feng.

For the Saturday family matinee there will be Americana crafts, snacks, and a chance to try some of the moves from the dance and be photographed with the dancers. All performances are suitable for all ages.

Tickets are $45. Admission for one child is included in the purchase of an adult ticket. Tickets for additional children are $20. Student tickets are $20.
