Performed by singer/songwriter Jonatha Brooke
Tuesday, June 12th, 2012 at 7:00pm
Join us for a one-of-a-kind Benefit Concert celebrating Summer Stages Dance at Concord Academy’s 15th Anniversary. The Love Songs of Woody Guthrie will be performed by Jonatha Brooke, with six new danceworks created especially for this event by choreographers Alexandra Beller, Sean Curran, David Dorfman, Heidi Latsky, Daniel McCusker, and David Parker.
“Ms. Brooke’s high, thin soprano, which hovers on the edge of a sob, is an ideal instrument for filtering the lyrics of Guthrie’s love songs through a female sensibility.”
Stephen Holden, The New York Times, January 19, 2012
