The renowned James Sewell Ballet and beloved Ahn Trio come together to create an inspiring evening of live chamber music and contemporary dance. The dancers and musicians combine forces to blur the lines between the two art forms.
James Sewell Ballet was founded in New York City by James Sewell and Sally Rousse and brought to Minnesota in 1993. Combining their expertise, vision, and determination they formed a close-knit company of artists who challenge their physical limits as well as their notions about ballet.
The Ahn sisters — Lucia (piano), Angella (violin), and Maria (cello) — were born in Seoul, Korea, and educated at the Juilliard School in New York City. Shaped by the two cultures, and extensive touring around the world, the trio invigorates the chamber music genre with a welcome fresh energy and passion.
