DETECTIVES, DANCING AND SWEET MELODIES (Family)

Presented by Allegro Music School and Sereda DanceWorks

Classical music, lively dance and some plain old fashioned detective work merge forces to solve the “great” musical mysteries of all time! Where did composer Saint-Saëns suddenly disappear to when he and his wife were vacationing? Why did no one attend Debussy’s funeral? What prevented Robert Shumann from marrying the love of his life, Clara? These mysteries and more brought to life with a dash of theatrical playfulness by talented dance and music students.
