MMDG Music Ensemble
The MMDG MUSIC ENSEMBLE, formed in 1996, is integral to the Dance Group. "With the dancers come the musicians…and what a difference it makes" (Classical Voice of North Carolina). The Ensemble's repertory ranges from 17th and 18th century works by John Wilson and Henry Purcell to more recent scores by Ethan Iverson, Lou Harrison, and Henry Cowell. The musicians also participate in the Dance Group's educational and community programming at home and on tour. The Music Ensemble is led by Colin Fowler, who began to collaborate with MMDG in 2005 during the creation of "Mozart Dances."
