Celebrate 100 years of Eurythmy!

The Eurythmy Spring Valley Ensemble will embark on their annual fall tour on October 14, 2012. This year's tour will take them to Canada, Maine, and western New York. The itinerary includes three public performances in Ontario: Toronto, The Novalis Project in Angus, and Ottawa (October 23rd), where the Ensemble will be performing their evening program Journey to Selfhood: Celebrating Rudolf Steiner through Eurythmy, Poetry, and Music. In this program, they explore the genius of Rudolf Steiner through the legacy of his choreographic forms for eurhythmy interspersed with artistic pieces of both poetry and music, based on his indications.

The program is enriched by a new piece, Rhapsody in Eb by Johannes Brahms, one of the less often played ballades. It starts at a strong, quick rhythmic pace and, via many contrasting sections and a beautifully lyric center, leads to a rousing finish  in minor, of course. The program also includes Danseuses de Delphes by Debussy, Regard de L'Etoile by Messiaen, a part of the Northumbrian Sequence by Kathleen Raine, poetry by Mary Oliver, and a few humorous pieces, including Meditation by Dreier.

The Eurythmy Spring Valley Ensemble was founded in 1986 and is the largest North American center for eurythmy performance. The Ensemble provided the infrastructure and artistic core of the New World Symphony Program, which was presented in August, 2005, in fifteen cities across North America, the first full, professional performance of orchestral eurythmy in North America in 27 years.

This August, the Ensemble again provided the infrastructure and artistic core for the first movement of Dvorak's New World Symphony, working with a new form by Dorothea Mier, that drew many professional eurythmists from North America and Europe to Chestnut Ridge in celebration of one hundred years of eurythmy.

The Touring Ensemble has performed in Europe, Asia and throughout North America, and offers two tours annually, in both Waldorf School communities and for the general public, reaching out to new countries and cultures in its effort to develop the use and appreciation of eurythmy throughout the world.  For more information about Eurythmy Spring Valley, please visit www.eurythmy.org, or call 845-352-5020, ext. 13, or info@eurythmy.org.

All proceeds from this event will be given to the Comité du Conseil d'École (parent association) at École Trille-des-Bois in support of their children eurythmy program.
