Georgia State University's Rialto Center presents the Trey McIntyre Project Farewell Tour, Saturday, April 26 at 8 p.m.

Georgia State University's Rialto Center for the Arts closes its ground-breaking season with the Trey McIntyre Project Farewell Tour, Saturday, April 26 at 8 p.m.
For six years, Trey McIntyre has led his own cutting-edge dance company through a bold and beautiful passion project infusing tenets of classical ballet with the vibrant, soulful energy of American life through rock, classical and jazz sounds.

Trey McIntyre Project will perform the crowd-pleaser Mercury Half-Life to the music of the late Freddie Mercury and Queen.  The tap solo in the opening and the music and imagery alone, are well worth the price of admission.  The performance features songs by Queen including "Bohemian Rhapsody" and We Will Rock You".

Also on the program for the evening is The Vinegar Works:  Four Dances of Moral Instruction, a new work commissioned by the Rialto Center, based on Edward Gorey's pen and ink illustrations.  This is the last work to be created for Trey McIntyre Project's full-time company.

You can catch them before they're gone at the Trey McIntyre Project Farewell Tour at the Rialto; Saturday, April 26 at 8 p.m.This event is a part of the Rialto Series, presenting the best of national and international jazz, world music and dance; Georgia State University's School of Music performances; film festivals and many others.
