    The inaugural Orpheum Dance Festival is hosting the residency of the Paul Taylor 2 Dance Company (Taylor 2), the outreach and education wing of the Paul Taylor Dance Company, at the Orpheum Performing Arts Center in Tannersville, NY for three weeks through May 26th.

The festival’s centerpiece is a performance by the world renowned Paul Taylor Dance Company on May 22 which launches the Orpheum Dance Festival Live Music for Dance Initiative and features repertoire specially selected by choreographer and dancer Paul Taylor to be performed for the first time with a Baroque orchestra of period instruments, with live music accompaniment provided by the distinguished orchestra American Virtuosi, conducted by harpsichordist Kenneth Hamrick. Kenneth Hamrick is the Artistic Director of The Catskill Mountain Foundation's Piano Performance Museum and he joins us to tell us more.
