Back by popular demand, view Motown and More from anywhere this weekend!
From The Temptations to Lizzo, DGMC celebrates a half-century of iconic African American pop music that has its roots in the distinctive sounds of the Motor City and now permeates every genre of popular music today. The concert features the first-ever collaboration with world-renowned Cleo Parker Robinson Dance. The Cleo II ensemble performs three world premiere works, choreographed by Ms. Parker Robinson specifically for this concert.
In addition, Motown and More features the Colorado premiere of “The Seven Last Words of the Unarmed,” by Joel Thompson. The last words of seven unarmed black men — including Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, and Eric Garner — each killed by police or authority figures, inspired the lyrics for this piece. Aurora’s Rangeview High School Choir joins DGMC for this powerful multi-movement choral piece.
