Artists from Washington, D.C. and New York combine forces to perform a mixed concert of music and movement in tribute to the iconic American composer Leonard Bernstein. The program will include less-commonly performed solo and chamber works by Bernstein along with the world stage premiere of Bernstein Tap & Rap, a modern interpretation of Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances—conceived by Nolan Williams, Jr. with book adapted by Duane Richards—featuring the internationally acclaimed tap dancer Cartier Williams and the Cartier Williams Dance Theatre. Produced by NEWorks Productions as part of its NEWorks@15 performance series.
