The work of Austrian, Norwegian, Russian and American composers is featured in the concert program, which includes music from Mozart, Grieg, Rachmaninoff and more.
Members of Dance Theatre Santa Fe (DTSF) will join McKay on stage for Mussorgsky’s “Hopak” in a performance choreographed by Alora Haynes, chair of the Fine Arts Department who was formerly co-director of DTSF. “Hopak” is derived from a word meaning “to leap and stamp one’s feet,” is background music for a traditional Ukrainian folk dance historically performed by Cossacks.
McKay will also be joined by one of SF’s new music scholarship students, DeVon Gainey, who will provide vocals for “Night Song” by H. Leslie Adams.
