PAUL TAYLOR DANCE COMPANY AND DUCHESS AT LINCOLN CENTER OUT OF DOORS

  • Damrosch Park

The renowned Paul Taylor Dance Company returns to Damrosch Park to perform one of its signature pieces, Company B, a pacifist masterpiece that questions some of the American myths that emerged out of times of war. Originally set to nine songs performed by the Andrews Sisters, tonight’s performance will feature live music by the charismatic New York vocal trio Duchess. Duchess opens the evening with special guest, rising South African jazz singer Vuyo Sotashe. Taylor’s Airs, another celebrated classic of his repertoire with music by Handel, rounds out this sparkling evening of song and dance.

Duchess will be joined by Patrick Bartley on clarinet and tenor sax, Mike Sailors on trumpet, Josh Brown on trombone, Michael Cabe on piano, Matt Aronoff on bass and Jared Schonig on drums.
