UWI Arts Sinfonia

The UWI Department of Creative and Festival Arts (DCFA) hosted an evening of orchestral dance music to a packed venue, the UWI Arts Sinfonia “Symphonic Dances,” conducted by Sameer Alladin.

This programme drew on some of the most delightful and popular dance inspired music, including Bizet’s energetic and light-hearted Farandole, Strauss’ Blue Danube Waltz (only the most famous Waltz ever written!), and Mussorgsky’s menacing Night on Bald Mountain. The centrepiece of this concert, Grieg’s Symphonic Dances, took us on a journey to Norway, and captivated us with its beautiful folk melodies.
