FIREBIRD: REIMAGINED 

 
The Mann Center for the Performing Arts will present the North American premiere of the multidisciplinary interpretation of Igor Stravinsky’s orchestral score for the 1910 ballet as part of their 2016 festival Firebird: Spirit Rising. 

"Firebird: Reimagined will link South African and Russian traditions and integrate music, literature, and the disciplines of dance, movement, and puppetry. This performance will feature The Philadelphia Orchestra, conducted by Cristian Măcelaru, Grammy award-winning, South African vocal ensemble Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and larger-than-life puppets inspired by the artistry of the Broadway sensation War Horse and created by Janni Younge of South Africa’s renowned Handspring Puppet Company. ."

DANNY SIMMONS: ONTO SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL

The Bazemore Gallery will be displaying Danny Simmons' exhibit "Onto Something Beautiful" for the rest of the summer. We are excited that Danny will be coming to our own gallery this fall, but for now, check out his exhibit in Manayunk! 

"Danny Simmons, painter, author, Founder and Vice Chairman of the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation and co-founder of Def Poetry Jam, is a modern day Renaissance man, accomplished in all that he undertakes. His latest body of abstract expressionistic work is no exception presenting edgy, inventive, invigorating and thought-provoking pieces."
