The Wilmington Symphony Orchestra presents a multi-disciplinary concert Saturday, February 3rd. This is a layered treatment of Julia Walker Jewell's original music, The Dance of the Coin, with orchestration, film, and live dancers. 

Forward Motion Dance presents its annual collaborative showcase this weekend-Cape Fear Arts in Motion: Duets, Pirouettes, and Vignettes. Director of the show, Tracey Varga, joined us in the studio and we mainly talked about the live music element. A flute trio, violinist Danijela Zezelj-Gualdi, and soprano Nancy King are performing with the dancers, plus Julia Walker Jewell is playing an original piano piece called The Dance of the Coin. Listen above to hear about how Varga approached choreography for this piece and Jewell's intention with it.
