The Sam Boshnack Quintet will be performing live at Velocity Dance Center for two nights in October!
Karin Stevens Dance (KSD) presents two performances of new contemporary dance with the Sam Boshnack Quintet live in performance. KSD dancers will be performing work by Stevens as well as guest choreographers, Penny Hutchinson and Jurg Koch.
Since the first KSD concert in 2009, every production incorporates a local, live and/or new music component. These upcoming performances feature the music of rising trumpeter/composer/bandleader Samantha Boshnack. Karin Stevens was inspired by Boshnack’s latest CD release, “Exploding Syndrome” featuring the Sam Boshnack Quintet. Her and the two guest choreographers have created new works to all eight compositions on the album. Stevens also created a new choreographic work and commissioned Boshnack to compose a Quintet piece for it.
