From the circular ground bass patterns of Baroque music, to the Guggenheim Museum’s sloping, spiraling floors, Classical 101′s Jennifer Hambrick explains how Henry Purcell transformed pain into pleasure – and into some of the most satisfying music ever composed.
Hixon Dance – A Best Kept Columbus Art Secret
I don’t need to tell you that Columbus is a city of art, packed full of creativity.
Within recent years it has done nothing but attract artists from all walks of life. No matter what your area of interest (dance, film, paint, music) Columbus is sure to offer something connected to the topic.
Some of the little known associations prove to be the best kept secrets, and I just happen to know of one to share with you:
Hixon Dance is a small modern dance company based right here in Columbus, Ohio. It is under the direction of Sarah Hixon, who received her MFA in choreography from The Ohio State University.
Hixon and her talented group of performers are responsible for arranging shows that tell unique stories in a unique way, all the while providing an entertaining and thought-provoking production. You can read all about the performers and the studio itself at the official website.
This month, Hixon Dance will be presenting a performance entitled, Airs and Dances II.
The production will feature the music of J.S. Bach, Jacob Reed, and Franz Schubert and will take place at the Columbus Dance Theater April 16-18 and 23-24. The shows will begin at 8:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and there will be a 2:00 p.m. matinée on Sundays. The price is $20 for adults and $15 for seniors and students.
