"The Harvey Gala," Brooklyn Academy of Music (Brooklyn, NY) - June 3, 1999
This event was in honor of BAM's outgoing president and executive director, Harvey Lichtenstein, and featured performances by many choreographers, musicians, and other artists connected to BAM. The solo piece danced by Mark Morris was a pièce d'occasion for the gala, and has only been performed this one time. Ethan Iverson (former Mark Morris Dance Group Musical Director and frequent collaborator) plays live onstage. The music for this piece begins with the "Flatbush Stomp," an original song by Iverson, and David Raksin's theme from the movie Laura (1944).
