The Academy of International Ballet (AIB), under the artistic direction of Anastasia Babayeva and Denis Gronostayskiy, will be the guest artists of the Delaware County Symphony (DCS) for their upcoming chamber concert.

Three of the compositions to be performed will feature our ballet dancers who will perform new choreography to two classical masterpieces by Smetana and Liszt and an original composition by Jennifer Nicole Campbell. The concert will also feature pianists Dasha Bukhartseva and Jennifer Nicole Campbell playing piano four hands. The program opens with Franz Schubert’s Fantasy in F Minor followed by the performance of a World Premiere composition titled “Butterfly Whispers” composed by the symphony’s Artist in Residence Ms. Jennifer Nicole Campbell with original choreography by AIB.

The concert continues with Maurice Ravel’s Three Poems of Mallarme featuring mezzo-soprano Katherine Skovira. The concert concludes with AIB dancers performing original choreography to Vltava (“Die Moldau”) from Ma vlast by Bedrich Smetana and Franz Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2. Dr. Robert Whalen is the Director of the DCS Chamber Music Series and also serves as Associate Conductor. Dr. Whalen was recently interviewed on the Comcast Newsmakers TV show about the role of ballet and chamber music in this concert.
