Cirque du Swing

When: Sat., Jan. 9, 8 p.m. 2010

Tonight's 8 o'clock Colorado Springs Philharmonic performance is billed as Cirque du Swing, which is translated from the French (according to my computer) "Circus of the Swing." Those of you sophisticated enough to be following the Philharmonic probably already know this. I did not. You probably also understand that there will be no tiny clowns packed into cars, or elephants on swings at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., csphilharmonic.org). And though the concert will feature the music of American composer George Gershwin, you can expect to hear '40s-era swing classics and Gershwin's An American in Paris. (Ah, that's in France! It's becoming clearer ...) And the Frequent Flyers Aerial Dance Theatre joins in with choreography on bungies, stilts, tippy hoops, aerial fabric and swinging trapeze. Je comprends! Tickets run $14 to $58. Bravo! — Jill Thomas

Price: $12-$16
