Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  MARQUETTE – The Northern Michigan University Orchestra will present “DancinÂ’ Up a Storm” at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 27, in Jamrich Hall room 103.  The concert will feature upbeat dance pieces such as the American fiddle tune “Hoedown” by Aaron Copland.  

Barbara Rhyneer, director of the NMU orchestra, said the song “Into the Storm” will be a special feature.

“It was composed during March 1993 when the ‘storm of the century’ gripped the eastern half of the United States,” she said. “The piece’s syncopated rhythms and repeated melodic lines create the fury of the storm with a haunting melody followed by a period of intense beauty and calm representing the ‘eye.’  The storm then returns with greater vengeance.”

The concert is free of charge and open to the public.
