Manchester Symphony Orchestra teams with dance for Honeywell Center
In a rare collaboration this March, members of the Manchester Symphony
Orchestra will travel to Wabash’s Honeywell Center to team up with
contemporary dance professionals for a performance that is highly
physical, yet sensitive enough to evoke an array of emotion.
Tickets are now on sale for the performance with ClancyWorks Dance
Company in downtown Wabash at 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 4. All tickets are
$7.50; children under 12 and seniors 65 and older are free.
Corporate sponsor is Midwest
Because of the high costs of live music, most dances are performed to
recordings. Dancers, musicians and audiences miss the transforming
experience of the interplay between live music and movement. The MSO and
Honeywell Center will put dancers and a select group of musicians
together on stage, weaving sight and sound.
The 50-member MSO will slim down to a chamber orchestra for this away
event. (The MSO of area musicians and College students is based at
Manchester College in North Manchester, directed by Suzanne Gindin,
assistant professor of music.)
Original “Taking Steps” choreography by dancer Adrienne Clancy of
breathes new life to the music of Aaron Copland’s famous ballet,
The orchestra also will perform an arrangement by Arnold
Schoenberg of Prelude to the
Afternoon of a Faun.
For tickets to the Honeywell program, seating charts and directions,

arrangements for this program.
A brunch in Eugenia’s Restaurant in Honeywell Center will precede the
performance, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The brunch cost is $9.95; for
reservations, call 260-563-1102.
