NOCOdance is thrilled to produce an evening of live aerial dance and music with members of the Fresno Philharmonic at the Fresno Art Museum. The Summer Soirée is an exciting first time collaboration between our two organizations and disciplines.
“As a director and choreographer, this has been a dream project. The collaboration with the Philharmonic has been a beautiful process, full of hopeful imagination for the arts scene in Fresno. About 10 months ago, our two organizations started casual conversations about an event. Fast forward through a myriad of details, including music selections, dance and music language barriers, and fitting an aerial rig inside the museum; we’ve carefully landed on this Summer Soirée. This is the kind of casually elegant event I would love to attend: live music, dancers, aerialists, art, champagne, Fresno summer nights. It is a collection of all my favorite things.” Amy Querin, Director NOCOdance
“The Fresno Philharmonic is excited about this first-time collaboration with NOCO at the Fresno Art Museum. Dance with live music has a very special magic and this is a wonderful opportunity to perform for a new audience in a new and different setting.” – Stephen Wilson, Executive Director Fresno Philharmonic
