About the Show:
About the Show:Danceworks Performance MKE (DPMKE) presents “Small but Mighty,” a dance showcase featuring Milwaukee chamber ensembles Microcosm Ensemble, Black Cat Ensemble, Cosmo Reed Quintet and the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra. This performance captures the essence of Chamber music, known for its subtlety and intimacy. As the single voice of each instrument stands alone with clarity and delicacy, the combination creates mighty ornamentation and complexity that transports listeners to different worlds. Highlights include a collaboration between DPMKE member Nekea Leon and Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra’s Steel Band Ensemble, along with world premieres by Soloist Elisabeth Roskopf, Artistic Director Christal Wagner and Choreographer Gina Laurenzi. Also appearing on the concert is Danceworks Intergenerational Performance Company (DIPC) also directed by Laurenzi and Danceworks Youth Performance Company (DYPC) directed by Gabi Sustache. One and all are welcome to this captivating celebration of dance and music in perfect harmony.
