The Music Center Announces 2013-14 Season

LOS ANGELES, April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Exemplifying its commitment to provide Los Angeles with inspiring, immersive entertainment for all ages, The Music Center announced its 2013-2014 Season, which includes major dance premieres, multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary performances for families and its nationally recognized series of free "do-it-yourself" arts events.  According to The Music Center, this extensive group of performances and arts-making opportunities – which includes engagements at all four of its venues and Grand Park – is The Music Center's most comprehensive, diverse season to date.

At the same time, The Music Center announced that Renae Williams Niles has been named vice president of programming for The Music Center.  Niles was most recently The Music Center's director of programming and responsible for leading The Music Center's highly successful dance series, Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at The Music Center. 

Stephen D. Rountree, president and CEO of The Music Center said, "This season truly defines The Music Center's role here in Los Angeles as the place where the community can enjoy distinctive yet relevant performing arts experiences.  Our presentations of dance, world arts traditions and participatory performing arts activities complement those presented by our resident companies in theatre, opera, classical and choral music.  Together, we ensure the community that a visit to a Music Center venue or to Grand Park means the opportunity to experience the best in the performing arts."

"I am delighted that Renae Williams Niles, who has so effectively grown our dance programming, will now lead programming for The Music Center as a whole.   Her success has transformed The Music Center into one of the great destinations in the world for ballet and contemporary dance – evidenced by the artists and companies that have made The Music Center and Los Angeles an important place for their work to be seen.  Her vision and expertise will be very valuable to the development of new initiatives, as we lead up to the fiftieth anniversary of The Music Center in 2014," Rountree added.

Niles said, "Programming at The Music Center is about creating distinctive and inspirational experiences for the greater Los Angeles community.  Working with our resident companies– the Los Angeles Philharmonic, LA Opera, Los Angeles Master Chorale and Center Theatre Group– and our Grand Park team, The Music Center celebrates the creative spirit through exceptional offerings and collaborations with internationally renowned artists and the opportunity for individuals to engage with the performing arts in ways that make them smile."

The 2013-2014 Music Center season includes the eleventh season of Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at The Music Center with six major premieres from renowned choreographers, including Matthew Bourne, Alexei Ratmansky, Ethan Stiefel/Johan Kobborg, Angelin Preljocaj, Medhi Walerski, and Otis Sallid; plus performances by the Paul Taylor Dance Company.

World City at The Music Center, also now in its eleventh season, includes presentations by renowned performing artists from Poland, Ireland, Tuva, the American West, Hip-Hop culture, and the Tex-Mex Conjunto tradition – all presented for free at the W.M. Keck Foundation Children's Amphitheatre at The Music Center's Walt Disney Concert Hall. 

The ninth season of Active Arts® at The Music Center will have people dancing, singing, telling stories, and playing music with more than 25 free do-it-yourself arts events offered throughout the summer and into the holiday season.
