Michigan’s “Holland Symphony Orchestra will add dance from around the world to the mix with its Classics Discovery: ‘Dance into Spring’ concert,” writes Andrea Goodell in Monday’s Lakeshore (West Michigan). “‘There are some exciting dances from around the world,’ HSO President and CEO Kay Walvoord says. ‘People are adventurous and willing to try new things. We need to stretch. We need to stretch our audiences. We need to stretch our musicians. We need to stretch our own selves to listen to different types of music.’ The concert will bring Hope College’s H2 Dance Co. … to join HSO for a staged version of Igor Stravinsky’s ‘Rite of Spring’ at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, March 19, at the Holland Civic Center Place …  The concert will include music from Arturo Marquez, Mexico’s most popular living composer, Tchaikovsky’s ‘Waltz’ from ‘The Sleeping Beauty,’ two of Johannes Brahms’s Hungarian Dances, and one of Antonín Dvořák’s Slavonic Dances…. The annual event used to be called the HSO Family Concert. It is now the Classics Discovery Concert … to draw a wider audience by bringing different elements of the arts together with symphonic music.”
