Sarah Dassinger joins Cascade Quartet for 'Song & Dance' performance

Posted: Jan 28, 2018 5:32 PM Updated:

The Cascade Quartet's "Song & Dance," a Chamber Music Series concert, found its way to the First Congregational United Church of Christ on Sunday for a unique performance.

The strings quartet performs eight times a year. They collaborated with artist Sarah Dassinger for Sunday's concert.

Dassinger moved to Great Falls from Kansas and is on the faculty of Miss Linda's School of Dance.

She created her own choreography to interpret Erwin Schuloff's Five Pieces, which was played at the event.

Violinist Megan Karls is in her sixth season as a member of the Cascade Quartet and she is glad to finally get a chance to collaborate with Dassinger.

"Often dancers don’t get to perform with live music and particularly chamber music is so visceral and so tactile and physical anyway," Karls said. "It's a very natural collaboration to work with a dancer and it's a more living art form than when they play to a recording." 

If you missed the concert today and would like to experience the event, the next "Song & Dance" with the Cascade Quartet is on Tuesday at the C.M. Russell Museum.
