Concerto in origin is simply "concert", depicting the companies
mission to bring concert dance works to the stage.
A "concerto", or concert, in the context of music has been explained by
Leonard Bernstein as meaning the "togetherness" of the orchestra.
Believing we are better together, Concerto Dance by Jolene Konkel seeks togetherness
in building connections with each other and the community.
Although the word concerto has come to be known as a specific form of music,
it embodies our aim as Concerto Dance to cultivate virtuosic performers expressing
technical and artistic excellence, and our our desire to draw upon and expand rooted codified forms of movement to express the vibrant and compelling nature of musicality.
