Garth Fagan Plans for a New Premiere This Fall

Jun 27, 2012

One of Rochester’s greatest jazz events this year is happening a few blocks from the festival, behind closed studio doors at Garth Fagan Dance.

Tony winning choreographer Garth Fagan is starting to put together a new dance.

He knows what it’s going to look like, at least in broad strokes.  But he doesn’t know what it’s going to sound like yet.  That’s because he’s asked a friend of his to write an original piece for the dance.  The friend is Grammy winning jazz musician Wynton Marsalis, and he’s not finished yet.
