PCMS with BalletX: Perelman Theater, Kimmel Center at 3:00 p.m.
The Philadelphia Chamber Music Society join BalletX at the Perelman Theater in the Kimmel Center . BalletX is Philadelphia’s premier contemporary ballet, whose dancers were named “among America’s best” by The New York Times, commissions choreographers from around the world to create dance that is “fresh, inclusive, and connects to what people want” (Philadelphia Citizen) while “positioning Philadelphia on the cutting edge of contemporary ballet” (The Dance Journal). Founded in 2005 by Christine Cox and Matthew Neenan, BalletX is led by Cox, whose tenure as Artistic & Executive Director has produced 84 world premiere ballets by 42 choreographers, a record “few companies can match,” according to The New York Times. Under Cox’s leadership, BalletX has been hailed as an “epicenter of creation” (Dance Magazine) and “place of choreographic innovation” (The New Yorker), putting Philadelphia on the map as an international destination for contemporary ballet.
The mission of the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society is to engage the community in a life more beautiful through the shared experience and transformative impact of chamber music, to make great repertoire and today’s leading artists available to everyone wishing to participate, and to build audiences and support for this incredible art form.
The afternoon is $35 to members of Friends of the Avenue of the Arts.
