Members and non-members are invited to join together for an summer evening of fun and networking at Landmarks Dance Night. Landmarks Dance Night brings music to move by from diverse cultures to the Hatch Shell. Love, magicians, and ghosts haunt the flamenco ballet, El amor brujo, inspired by tales of the Romani people. The rhythms of Haiti and Vodou culture, and the drumming of the West African diaspora inspire Bostonians of disparate backgrounds to dance, from amateurs to established professionals. The brilliant young professionals of Boston Ballet II close the 2019 season performing to The Dance of the Hours, a perennial Arthur Fiedler favorite.
Students from Conservatory Lab Charter School perform with Boston Landmarks Orchestra and soloists from Castle of our Skins. Students from Camp Harbor View will cap off a summer of unlocking creativity with a performance of a new work they will co-compose with musicians Jake Gunnar Walsh and Devin Ferreira and choreographer Chanel Thompson. Special lighting and commissioned projections will illuminate the surfaces of the Hatch Shell behind and around the orchestra.
What to bring:
- Your own dinner/snacks
- A folding chair (folding chairs are available to rent at the Information Tent for $5 each) or blanket
- Bug spray
