Ballet Idaho Gets Inspiration From Public Radio For Their Holiday Show
Snow falling today in the Treasure Valley accenutated the holiday mood shared by Idaho Matters guest Anne Mueller, Artistic Associate at Ballet Idaho. She introduced the upcoming dance production, "Spectacular Holiday Spectaular."
The inspiration for its music came from Mueller's time listening to Carl Scheider, the radio host of Private Idaho and Idaho Music on Boise State Public Radio. Every December, our DJ has broadcast Idaho holiday music from the Idaho Ho Ho! series of albums by the Audiolab Recording Studio.
Mueller described the choreography as paying homage to classic variety TV shows of the 1970s and '80s. The prodcution is now in rehearsal, with the participation of dancers from across the ballet company. She shared a few audio snippets of the original Idaho holiday music that will be featured in the performance.
