La Jolla Music Society Presents Some of a Thousand Words, a new project by Wendy Whelan and Brian Brooks with live music by Brooklyn Rider on Saturday, December 2, 2017 at 8pm at Balboa Theatre.
Choreographer Brian Brooks is beloved for his “kinetic thrill and visual power” (The Washington Post), while former New York City Ballet star and principal dancer Wendy Whelan is “riveting, interesting, unusual, intelligent” (The New York Times). La Jolla Music Society audiences will remember Restless Creature, their winning collaboration in 2015. This Season they return with new solos and duets, full of elegance and electricity, amplified by the remarkable live music of string quartet Brooklyn Rider, hailed as “the future of chamber music” (Strings Magazine).
