A live sound mosaic, Savion Glover in Concert, will be the inaugural attraction of the fully-transformed John Anson Ford Amphitheatre at the Ford Theatres on July 15 at 8 p.m.
Glover’s rhythmic genius will be accompanied by the band Dance Candy, as well as his renowned dance ensemble featuring Marshall Davis, Jr., Robyn Watson, and Karissa Royster. Through the interplay of song, melody and percussion, this acoustic virtuoso will present a dynamic and uplifting evening centered on a message of hope.
The dance concert will also be the first attraction of the “IGNITE @ the FORD” series that brings to the Ford stage national and regional cultural collaborations with The Lincoln Center Festival and New York’s Apollo Theater, The Music Center, LA Opera, Skirball Cultural Center and Fountain Theatre.
The 2017 season also represents a significant milestone for the Ford Theatres, following the completion of a multi-phase restoration – the venue’s first major expansion in the history of the hillside cultural site – and new programming initiatives that will broaden the Ford’s offerings.
Ford Theatres is located at 2580 Cahuenga Blvd. E. For information, visit fordtheatres.org.
