The works on the program include:

Pacific

Serenade
Lou Harrison — Serenade for guitar and percussion
Numerator (world premiere)
Lou Harrison — Varied Trio for violin, piano, and  percussion
Grand Duo 
Lou Harrison — Grand Duo for violin and piano

Lou Harrison was a friend, and his music has been a decades-long inspiration to me as a choreographer. I’ve made up dances to many of his scores and there exist many more that are varied, extravagant, and irresistible. Lou said, ‘Music is a Song and a Dance.’ Not only do I agree, but he was absolutely right. I gratefully and humbly celebrate his centenary.” — Mark Morris
