Dancer Andrea Skowronek
 
  Andrea Skowronek wrote in the program: "Legend has it that the Arcadian nymph Syrinx, fleeing from the god Pan, begged the Naiads to change her into reeds growing on the river bank. Pan, thinking these reeds hid the nymph, cut them down. Sighing over the reeds, Pan ound they gave forth a musical sound, where upon he fashioned them into flutes. I grew up hearing my father, flutists Felix Skowronek, playing "Syrinx." This piece is dedicated in loving memory to him."

Music Ira J. Mowitz

A funny piece about the frustrations of being placed on hold.

 
  From the program: "Ira J. Mowitz's "Answering Machine Music," commissioned by the American Music Center for use as on-hold music for their telephone system, was the inspiration for this structured improvisation. The dancers created choreographed phrases for this piece."
