Celebrating 10 years, Cordancia revisits some of its favorite repertoire. A decade ago, Milhaud's "La Création du Monde" brought a group of musicians together for a performance in 2009. This event became the creation of Cordancia. For this year's celebrations, Cordancia will perform La Création with dancers from BIODANCE and Rachel Lauber on the podium. Artistic Directors: Pia Liptak (concertmaster) / Kathleen Suher (principal oboist).
