PERFORMING ARTS: Dance and music combine in ‘The Stream of Life’ at WWU

Western Washington University and Bellingham House Concerts co-sponsor a music-and-dance collaboration, “The Stream of Life,” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 9, at WWU’s Performing Arts Center Concert Hall.

“Stream of Life” is a collaboration featuring Claire Victoria Davison, a 19-year-old ballerina with the American Ballet Theatre in New York City, and Victoria Ebel-Sabo, her composer and concert pianist aunt, who is well known to the artistic community in Whatcom County. Ebel-Sabo is creator and artistic director of Bellingham House Concerts, which showcases Washington pianists and chamber musicians in homes and intimate concert venues.

The two generations of creative artists and family members will present a program of original music and choreography based on life’s experiences and relationships.

Davison, combining classical ballet and modern dance, will dance, while Ebel-Sabo performs on the “Ford Hill” Steinway concert grand piano. “The Stream of Life” by poet Rabindranath Tagore, inspired Sabo’s music.
