Collaboration with Joffrey Academy

We are absolutely delighted to be working with the splendid Joffrey Academy and the incomparable Wheaton College Artist Series. Tony Payne, the General Manager, has brought great commitment and steadfast enthusiasm to this venture. This marvelous collaboration represents an outstanding opportunity to combine orchestral repertoire with ballet at its finest.

Drostan Hall, Music Director of Camerata Chicago, said “artistic excellence will emerge with the confluence of Joffrey Academy, Camerata Chicago and the Artist Series at Wheaton College. This will bring a unique concert experience to the audience and working together will be a great privilege”.

Ashley Wheater, Artistic Director of The Joffrey Ballet said: “We are thrilled to partner with the Wheaton College Artist Series and Camerata Chicago. The Joffrey Trainees and Studio Company are highly skilled students on the cusp of their professional careers. The opportunity to perform with one of the finest chamber orchestras is invaluable. We look forward to showcasing the Academy’s world-class training in this new collaboration.”

In a letter to concertgoers, Tony Payne, General Manager of the Artist Series, said: “We are very honored to present the Joffrey Academy with Drostan Hall conducting Camerata Chicago in a program of dance and orchestral music. If there is a household word in ballet today, JOFFREY might well be that word.”

This special collaboration will feature Mozart’s Symphony No. 25 in G Minor and Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings on January 27, 2017 at the Wheaton College Artist Series.
