Prepare to be moved and inspired by the choreography and performances in this annual concert that features dances by selected JMU dance majors, former JMU dance professor Cynthia Thompson, and Rubén Graciani, dean of JMU’s College of Visual and Performing Arts and professor of dance. Graciani—in collaboration with The Madison Singers, JMU Chorale, the JMU Percussion Ensemble, and JMU dance students—will premiere Triptych, a fast-moving, three-movement work by Grammy-nominated composer Tarik O’Regan (b. 1978). The uplifting and unifying piece explores ideas about what happens when we die drawn from Jewish, Islamic and Christian texts.

ABOUT TARIK O'REGAN
O’Regan is a London-born composer based in San Francisco and a Composer-in-Residence with Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra. His output, recognized with two GRAMMY® nominations (including Best Classical Album) and two Ivors®, has been recorded on over 40 albums and is published exclusively by Novello. O' Regan's music is described as “exquisite and delicate” (The Washington Post) and “sublime: a piece that you didn't want to end” (The Times, London) generating “previously unheard sound worlds with astonishing effect” (The Philadelphia Inquirer). One of his commissioned works will premiere at Majesty King Charles III Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey.
