Tuesday Musical is partnering with Verb Ballets and The Chamber Music Society of Ohio to celebrate two Akron arts legends: jazz pianist/composer Pat Pace and Ohio Ballet founder/choreographer Heinz Poll. As part of Tuesda Musical Fuze Serives the dancers will share the stage with live accompaniment by the musicians of the Chamber Music Society of Ohio. Verb Ballets will perform Poll’s Rococo Variations in the original costumes, marking the piece’s first performance since Ohio Ballet closed following Poll’s passing in 2006. The concert will highlight jazz musician, Pace, with a new full ensemble ballet choreographed by Verb Ballets dancer, Kate Webb. That program also features Shéhérazade Retold; a reconceived tale of a woman inspired to warrior choreographed by Loretta Simon.
