Win FREE TICKETS for “Temptation of the Muses” @ Troy Savings Bank Music Hall on Saturday

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

A dance performance is a rare occurrence at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall, but an evening that fuses together dance and music makes for a very, very special event.

And that’s exactly what’s slated to take place on Saturday night (February 16) when the Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company and the Ahn Trio join forces for “Temptation of the Muses.”

A blossom of color, energy and motion – the dances of Nai-Ni Chen fuse the dynamic freedom of American modern dance with the grace and splendor of Asian art. In “Temptation of the Muses,” this renowned dance company joins the Ahn Trio, one of classical music’s most innovative ensembles, and composer Kenji Bunch, in an exciting new collaboration that integrates new original music along with musical selections by Pat Metheny, David Balakrishnan and Ronn Yedidia, and original dance in a performance inspired by the poem “A Word for Freedom,” by Persian poet Latif Nazemi.

“Temptation of the Muses” will be performed at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall in Troy at 8pm on Saturday (February 16). Tickets are priced at $15, $25, $29 & $34; student discount is $5 off.
