Cancelled: USF-Performing Arts Medicine Conference

Event Type: Music
Facility: School of Music (MUS)
Presented By: School of Music
USF-Performing Arts Medicine Conference presents a concert of music and dance by artists from 
USF School of Music, School of Dance, The University of Georgia, Ewha Womans University, and 
Tampa’s legendary luminaries. The concert opens with excerpts from "7th Ave & Ybor" produced 
and performed by Tampa City Ballet and USF Dancers, depicting stories of Cuban, Spanish, Italian 
and Jewish immigrants leaving their hardship-laden lands in search of new opportunities to work in 
the cigar factories and industries during the time of growth of young Ybor City. The audience is 
treated with a rare genre of guitar trio performing Rondo for Guitar Trio by Paul Hindemith, L’Evasion 
by Astor Piazzola, and an original piece composed by guitarist-composer LaRue Nickelson. Highly 
appraised Kara Davis and Bliss Kohlmyer dance duo will perform "Conver(at)ions" which explores 
liminality or the state of being in between. The legendary jazz vocalist and artist-in-residence at the 
Straz Performing Arts Center Fred Johnson is joined by renowned Don Laurin Johnson, John Parks, 
and Katurah Robinson in an extraordinary new work created for this concert, Melody Movement 
Medicine Song. The concert will conclude with a world premiere work commissioned by pianists 
Sang-Hie Lee and Martha Thomas written by Michael Timpson, Professor of Composition at Ewha 
Womans University. "Quodlibets" is filled with post-modern aesthetics with quotations and hints from 
"Arirang" to Stravinsky, to Jimi Hendrix, to Duke Ellington, to K-pop, to J.S. Bach, L.V. Beethoven, 
and many more... This one-of-a-kind concert is not repeatable anywhere.
