Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

Pianist Conrad Tao and dancer Caleb Teicher combine their individual artistry into a collaboration that drives the imagination and opens the heart for a unique Valentine’s Day performance. The stylistically diverse music of Counterpoint includes the Aria from Bach’s Goldberg Variations, Art Tatum’s stride piano, Arnold Schoenberg’s ironic take on the Viennese waltz, a delicate miniature from Tao and Teicher’s More Forever, and threading it all together — Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue.
