George Mason University Center for the Arts
Concert Hall | Fairfax, VA
In November we travel to Fairfax, VA, with a career Epilogue for Doug Varone. In 1987, Doug Varone created a solo for himself set to Chopin's Nocturne #8 in D flat Major, Opus 27, #2. This seminal work set in motion a vocabulary and style that Varone has been mining ever since. Now thirty years later, Varone has choreographed its companion: another solo work for himself to Chopin's Nocturne in E Minor, Opus 72.
Also on the program will be four sections from last year's in the shelter of the fold and an audience favorite, Lux.
