Three Centuries of Printmaking
The Frick features three exhibitions of printmaking: its own collections of 18th-century mezzotints and 19th century chomolithographs, complemented by the traveling exhibition The Prints of Jacques Callot. The three shows span over 200 years, yet all the works demonstrate the importance of the printmaker in recording, publishing and disseminating a distinct view of the world.
This documentary follows six gifted young dancers who are among the thousands, ages 9 to 19, who enter the Youth America Grand Prix, one of the world’s most prestigious ballet competitions.
Grand Finale with Honeck
Manfred Honeck closes the season with the PSO's Gorton family (James, Gretchen and daughter Heidi) in an imaginative Concert Piece by Eugene Goossens. Maestro Honeck continues the PSO's Mahler Cycle with the immensely moving Sixth Symphony, containing the haunting sounds of Alpine cowbells, celesta, and a devastating hammer of fate. Last performed by the PSO ten years ago, this "Tragic" Symphony is an epic masterwork.
A Chorus Line
From the pen of legendary composer Marvin Hamlisch comes this Tony Award-winning "singular sensation" -- a powerful and emotion-filled musical for anyone who's ever had a dream and put it all on the line.
