WMPAC keeps the arts alive with in-person, virtual stage offerings
Big Sky’s Warren Miller Performing Arts Center continues its hybrid summer programming with a concert by The Crossing on Saturday, August 1st at 6pm. Run time is one hour. Tickets range $7–$19.
Singers from the two-time Grammy-winning ensemble The Crossing join forces with singers from the Montana-based choir Roots in the Sky (formerly Aoide Singers) in their sixth summer residency with an innovative approach to ensemble singing in the time of COVID-19. The Crossing and WMPAC are commissioning the Oscar-nominated and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang to create a new piece specifically for the concept of singing together from a distance. The WMPAC-sponsored show will serve as its world premiere.
An additional night of hybrid stage entertainment follows with James Sewell Ballet on Saturday, August 8th at 6pm. Run time is one hour. Tickets range $7–$19.
James Sewell Ballet has been with WMPAC from the beginning, and this year will be the same. The company returns for a week-long foray into “Dis-Danced” art-making. The troupe will communicate and create between the WMPAC stage and their home studio in Minnesota, coming together virtually across the distance to preserve the special energy of a live dance performance. This workshop showing of new movement is inspired by our current shared parameters.
Note: Warren Miller events may now be experienced as part of a limited in-person audience or by way of virtual broadcast. Details vary by performance.
